LGBTQ+ Mi Gente, Siempre: Addressing Transphobia and Homophobia in the Latinx Community

Sponsor: AARP & HRC

Some of the often unspoken topics in the Latinx community, especially within families, are about gender and sexual identity issues which often lead to lasting hurt and pain while tearing apart important relationships. This panel shares real stories by Latinx LGBTQ+ individuals, how members of this demographic have worked to overcome discrimination, and how to become allies for social justice. Our panel of Queer-Latinx activists will discuss their own experiences with discrimination and what they believe can be done to help some of the Latinx communities’ most vulnerable members.
