A young boy in Mexico stood in the street and tried to stop 11 thousand people marching against same-sex marriage over the weekend.
After President Pena Nieto proposed that they introduce same-sex marriage across the country, thousands took to the streets to march against the proposed law.
In Celaya, Guanajuato, a 12-year-old boy was snapped by journalist and photographer Manuel Rodriguez as he stood in front of the car leading the protest.
Rodriguez told Regeneracion that at first glance, he thought the child was "only playing", but upon speaking to the boy, he said: “I have an uncle who is gay and I hate the hatred.”
Same-sex marriage is currently legal in Mexico City, as well as Coahuila, Quintana Roo, Jalisco, Nayarit, Chihuahua, Chiapas and Sonora. The proposed new law would allow same-sex couples in the remaining 30 states to wed, also.
