Fashion magazine Harper’s Bazaar is investigating Lucia Alarcón, editor-in-chief of the Mexican version of the magazine and part-time cousin of former Mexican labour minister Javier Lozano.

Lucia Alarcón tweeted “Jesus is changing lives!” and published a video in which representatives of the LGBT community were allegedly undergoing conversion therapy.

The journalist quickly removed the post, but many social media spies already condemned her for homophobic statements.


The head office of Harper’s Bazaar magazine, which is located in the United States, reacted to Alarcon’s homophobic statement.

“We noticed that a post was published from a personal account associated with Harper’s Bazaar Mexico that promoted discrimination. This is unacceptable, and at the moment we are actively addressing the issue with the publisher. We condemn hatred, homophobia, discrimination and racism. We support representatives of the LGBT community, as well as advocate for a diverse, inclusive and fair culture for all, ” – said in the official Harper’s Bazaar US Instagram account.

The Mexican unit replied that it would begin an investigation into the chief editor.

Alarcon herself on Instagram soon wrote that she apologizes to those whom she has offended.

“I will cooperate with those who are investigating and will accept the sanctions that the publisher will impose, who teach to be tolerant. I am very sorry that this happened, but it is never too late to rectify the situation. I thank those who gave me instructions.”

The editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar Mexico has not been fired or even temporarily removed from office.
