Hundreds of people from Ecuador's LGBTI community and its supporters paraded Saturday through the streets of the coastal city of Guayaquil to celebrate Pride Day.

Although there were protestations against the violence and discrimination that this community still endures, it was also a festival in which advances were celebrated in a parade full of color, dancing and music.

The march traveled through the main streets of the center of Guayaquil, especially the popular 9 de Octubre avenue, and concluded in the Parque del Centenario, where a stage was installed for a festival.
