Operation Tolerancia: Addressing Homophobia in Latino Communities
Note from GLAAD
A very nuanced piece by Lilia Luciano that emphasizes Latino support for LGBT issues, as well the need for more education, as is the case for all communities. Includes interviews with GLAAD's Monica Trasandes and Aaron McQuade.
As we highlight the many complexities of our heritage it's also a time to dig into the stereotypes that surround us. We've been called many things, some that we embrace less than others — such as the stereotype that Latinos are homophobic by culture.
