I see you, I know you, I love you

When the best thing in your life is the one thing you can't talk to your mom about.

MiTú, the popular digital network that shares Latino inspired content launched in 2012, shares a love poem with its audience in the video Chicano 2.0: Queer Xicanas. The refrain of the poetic narration says "This is for the queer brown folks…I see you, I know you, I love you." The affirmation is both for the queer xicanas and queer brown people who watch the video as much as it is for the speaker. @conchitaqween can't share her love for the woman in her life with her mother. @conchitaqween says that her mother and the mothers of many people she knows choose to stop talking about or to their daughters after they come out. They hope that by not talking about it, their daughters' orientation will cease to exist. Although Latinos have shown increasing rates of support for LGBT people and issues, it is important to acknowledge that some families do reject their LGBT children and this leads to the worst outcomes. A video like this is an antidote for the hurt.
