Video Campaign Tells Moving Stories of LGBT Latinos

The videos are now available for viewing. “An Honest Conversation,” aims to start a provocative and honest dialogue by looking into the lives of Latinos in America. The three videos introduce us to: Bianca, a Salvadoran-American lesbian, her Chicana partner, Giselle, and Ronnie, a Mexican-American former Army serviceman.  The videos are powerful and deal with a range of issues such as discrimination, abuse, HIV, and coming out in religious households.
