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.
