Dozens of activists marched on Saturday in Mexico City to demand justice for the murders of members of the LGBT+ community.

For the third consecutive year, some 50 members of the community, led by the Light of Our Dead collective, gathered at the Monument to the Revolution, in the center of the Mexican capital.

With shouts of "Justice!" and "Not one more murder," the protesters demanded the authorities investigate and clarify dozens of deaths.

"We seek to make an energetic call for attention and action to the authorities, to the federal and local legislative powers, as well as to society in general about these murders and deaths that occur every day," they said in a statement.

The protesters carried a coffin wrapped in a rainbow flag to show their outrage at these hate crimes which, they said, have escalated in recent years.
