Who is without sin, speak up now or forever hold your peace, because for love everything is permitted. To those who sinned because of love.

San Sebastian, we dedicate this to you because one year ago we met each other on a marvelous gay-lesbian manifestation. We have been a couple ever since. We live for each other, without prejudice. We are for this Coexistence (Law), because to be a homosexual is not a crime, but the discrimination is.

St. Charbel, thank you for your favors.

One day I met Isidro at a dance. We had a drink, we chatted for a while and we fell in love with each other. But Isidro surprised me when he asked me to slap him in the face and to kiss after that. I thought he was kidding me. Some time later I moved to his place. And one night, before going to sleep, he asked me to spank his ass with a board. I refused, but he insisted. He said that if I really loved him, I had to spank him. Otherwise, I should leave him. Needless to say, I fell in love with a masochist.

Mariana Flores met Teresa. She admired her beauty and couldn’t do anything but constantly think of her. It was too much for her, so she confessed her love to Teresa. Teresa was stunt and told that she was feeling the same. We start to have relationship, and we became very happy. We thank the Holy Child of Atocha for the great luck of meeting one another.

Saint Jude Thaddeus, I thank you for your support. My masochistic partner had a doubt about his desires. We argued heatedly about it, until the day of the breaking up came. However, four months later he couldn’t stand the separation, and thanks to Saint Jude we returned to each other. He realized what he wanted and accepted who he was. So now, before going to sleep, he asks me to spank him really good.

I met a handsome young man on the beach in Puerto Vallarta. I began to suspect that he was gay, because whenever he passed by he glanced at me smiling. Also he preferred pink towels. I thank Saint Anthony, the patron saint of lovers, for I took the liberty of talking with him. So now we’re a couple.

I thank the Virgin of San Juan for making me understand the importance of running away with my boyfriend. With the help of our friend we can ran away so our parents couldn’t punish us.

One day I found out that my boyfriend fell in love with my brother. I was insulted, offended, disappointed and very angry. But thanks to Saint Michael Archangel I met Jose Antonio and fell madly in love with him. Now I think it’s very nice that my brother and David love each other and are happy together, as I am. I dedicate this retablo to Saint Michael in gratitude.

Paco & Omar offer this retablo to Saint Sebastian for their second anniversary of being together, in spite of the fact that our families were against our relationship. It proves that love can do everything.

We thank Saint Sebastian because the Law for Coexistence Partnerships gave to us, two men in love, right to live as a couple in marriage without hiding our love from the public and without being ashamed for our love.

Saint Jude Thaddeus, thank you for all your favors.

Finally we can do what we obtained to do. Now we can get married. We all, gays and lesbians, asked for our respect and to not discriminate us. We’re thanking that it’s happened. So now we can hide no more to love each other.
