04 Oct Puerto Vallarta and San Francisco, a twinning that strengthens the LGBT community
In order to strengthen ties that involve concrete actions in favor of the different areas of the cities of Puerto Vallarta and San Francisco (California), the twinning with the taking of protest of the Sister Cities Committee was formalized.
This committee will have great importance since it will entail great challenges to generate activities that benefit both cities in health, tourism, sports, ecology, culture, technologies, among other areas and topics related to the LGBT community.
The flow of tourists who fly daily to Puerto Vallarta is very important, as our city receives two daily flights from San Francisco, which opens an interesting field of action to work on prevention in health, such as HIV, PREP and outpatient medical attention to visitors, as well as in the area of tourism, actions that benefit the hospitality, gastronomy and all entrepreneurship related to this sector, as well as strategies for caring for the environment and growth in the technological area.
On the other hand, the council member Susana Rodríguez Mejía, who was present at the formal ceremony, said that this is a joint effort recognizing mainly the LGBTQI community of the city, a thriving sector that always fights for its rights and that contributes greatly measure to the greatness of Puerto Vallarta.
In this way the interim mayor, Rodolfo Rodríguez Monroy, of Puerto Vallarta, took the protest to the Committee of Sister Cities Puerto Vallarta-San Francisco, which was formed by Víctor Antonio Rodríguez Cázares as president; Orlando Santamaría, substitute president; Francisco Javier Arjona Barbosa, secretary; Armando del Toro, Vidal Meza Peña, Héctor Gabriel Ramírez Betancourt, David Muck, María del Carmen Porras Echeverría, Beatriz Rodríguez, Estrella Velazco, Juan Carlos Hernández Salazar and Nanci Gutiérrez, as vocals.
