Baja California Sur for LGBTQ Scuba Divers
Mexico, including all of Baja, is generally considered a relatively tolerant and accepting place for LGBTQ+ individuals, with legal protections against discrimination and hate crimes in place. Same-sex sexual activity has been legal in Mexico since 1871, and same-sex marriage is legal throughout the country. Currently, Equaldex gives this area an 84 on its Equality Index. This is actually two points higher than the USA!

Scuba divers are invasive visitors to the seas; there is no doubt about it. But, just as responsible people try to minimize our impacts on land, so should divers look at their time visiting the water as an opportunity to observe and protect.

I have witnessed barren areas which were once thriving ecosystems of coral reefs, teeming with life. I quickly came to believe that divers were a small part of this destruction, and we have to be a part of the change we want to see.
