MEXICO CITY, June 23 (Reuters) - Hundreds of same-sex couples and transgender people in Mexico City celebrated weddings and the completion of administrative processes to change their gender on Friday, in a mass ceremony a day before the city's annual gay pride march.

Some 120 couples met the requirements to get married under the slogan "Hand in hand, we march with pride," the city government said in a statement.

In 2009, Mexico City became the first jurisdiction in Latin America to legalize same-sex marriage.

Another 131 people in the capital are set to complete administrative gender-change processes, the city government said.

Transgender people face many hurdles when they cannot update legal documents such as ID cards to reflect their gender identity.

The process, which is free in Mexico City, comes after legal reform in 2014 allowing adults to change their gender on birth certificates and electoral cards if they identify as a different gender from the one assigned at birth. »
