Being queer in today’s America is challenging, but being queer and Latinx is a whole can of rainbow gummy worms. We all grew up watching our mother’s judge every passing person for their weight, clothes, and overall presentation. Add deep-seeded machismo and we have an uphill battle.
These Queeros* are creating space for joy and celebration of LGBTQ+ Latinos in the mainstream.
*Thank you, Cameron Esposito, for the Queer+Hero=Queero mashup. Let’s make “Queero” happen.
