COSTA RICA NEWS – So as not to conflict (and end up with a poor turnout), the planned Marcha de la Diversidad (Diversity March) by Costa Rica’s LGBT community was moved up from noon to 10am.

Costa Rica’s national team plays Greece at 2pm.

The march today will be the fifth consecutive annual march and organizers expect a massive attendance of people who support the pro-rights projects of the lesbo-bi-trans-intersex community.

The marshals of the event will be the leaders of the Frente por los Derechos Igualitarios (FDI), which has led the first for the collection of signatures in favour of allowing same-sex marriage in the country.

One of the marshals is former presidential candidate and legislator for the Frente Amplio (FA), José María Villalta.

Also expected as a marshal but dropped out at the last minute, was Costa Rica’s vice-president, Ana Helena Chacón.  The VP said her duties require her attendance today in Bagaces, Guanacaste, filling in for president Luis Guillermo Solís whois in the Dominican Republic, attending a meeting of the Sistema de Integración Centroamericana (SICA), the Central American Integration System, of which Costa Rica is a part.

Marco Castillo, head of the Movimiento Diversidad, said Chacón called him personally to apologize for her cancellation, but will be sending a spokesperson to deliver her message.

The Diversity March will start in Paseo Colón and move along Avenida Central and finish outside the entrance to Chinatown, in San José.
