More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
Video Campaign Tells Moving Stories of LGBT Latinos
Last month we featured Cuéntame’s trailer for their new video campaign which focuses on LGBT youth. 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.
Here is the first video in the series featuring Bianca:
