Hoping to bring to light the faces of the Latino LGBTQ community, Somos Familia spoke with a number of mothers to discuss what it was like for their children to come out.
Somos Familia created “Historias de Color” (Colorful Lives) to “develop leadership among parents of LGBTQ children by sharing and developing their personal stories and actually having these stories recorded.”
In a documentary entitled, “Tres Gotas de Agua” (Three Drops of Water) three immigrant women tell their stories of having a LGBTQ child, and how important it is to love them, not only for their benefit, but for the benefit of the community.
One mother said, “My message is to give them support, to support them, to accept them as they are.”
Another mother, Mirna (seen below), reminds us, “All of society is one big family. I believe…that [when] we accept one another, we begin to create safer communities.”
