Chilean Presidential Palace Illuminated with LGBT Rainbow

SANTIAGO – Hundreds gathered here in front of La Moneda Palace, headquarters of the Chilean executive branch, to enjoy a four-hour-long light show marking the International Day Against Homophobia.

The Movement for Homosexual Integration and Liberation, known as Movilh, organized the projection of the striking rainbow that has become the global emblem of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex community.

The event testifies to “the political will, cultural change and ethical capacity to understand that we all must involve ourselves against discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity,” Movilh’s Rolando Jimenez told EFE.

Chile became the second country in the world to light up a government building with the rainbow, following the U.S., which illuminated the White House.

“This milestone marks a before and after in the struggle,” Jimenez said.
