When we asked people about diversity in Mexico and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...

"Mexico boasts an incredibly diverse population that reflects their country's mixed heritage and history. People in Mexico are generally very accepting of differences and strive to celebrate the variety of cultures that make up their nation. Mexico's culture is a blending of many customs, values, and traditions from different backgrounds, which has created a unique atmosphere of acceptance and respect for people from all walks of life," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Mexico.

"Tequis is wonderful. I came about 8 mo before the pandemic hit. We went through a bit of a stretch, but it is slowly coming back. Restaurants and tiendas are coming back. The town does get crowded on big holidays - Easter Holiday and Christmas. Normal weekends are 'busy' but doable. We locals just tend to stay home Friday thru Sunday. You do have to watch out for the teenagers on 4 wheelers! As far as diversity, it depends upon what you define as diversity. There is not a large LGBTQ population here. This is a VERY family oriented town. If that is what you are looking for, I suggest San Miguel. The statement about police not chasing for mordidas is true. I personally have had to get help 2 times. Just this past week, I was rear ended at a stop sign and they are just as nice and fair as can be. All have a smile and are caring! Tequis is no where near as congested as San Miguel - very tranquil lifestyle!!!," commented one expat who made the move to Tequisquiapan, Mexico.
