Mar is a member of the migrant caravan from Honduras and participated in an LGBTQ wedding in Tijuana, Mexico. Many of the migrants along side Mar were fleeing persecution for their sexuality. In many countries, they dealt with the highest levels of violence in the world. Gay marriage is illegal where they come from. However, once they crossed the Mexican border, they finally had the opportunity to celebrate their love. Seven couples had the opportunity to marry. I was able to witness this moment alongside Mar. She caught the flowers.
