Somos Familia supports Latino families with children who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ*) and conducts education to create family and community acceptance. The group was started by two mothers to support other families with similar experiences.
* LGBTQ refers to people who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Queer. Transgender refers to people who have a gender identity that is different than the sex they were assigned to at birth or who do not conform to the gender roles that are traditional in society. Many people have embraced the term Queer as a positive identity for living outside society’s norms related to sexual orientation and gender.
Entre Nos is an animated series about family acceptance. In season 1, we follow one family on their journey toward accepting their gay son. New episodes every Tuesday. Click here for more episodes.

Cuando me declaré (o salí del closet) con mi madre, sus amistades nos dieron la espalda. Ella ahora tiene esperanza y sabe que puede hacer amistades con otras madres/padres que no la juzgarán por tener una hija queer.
When I came out to my mother her friends turned their backs on us. She now has hope and knows that she can make friends with other parents who will not judge her for having a queer child. — Miembra de Somos Familia • Somos Familia Member
