The Community Voices Behind Entre Nos
In February 2017, we launched our animated series – Entre Nos. Entre Nos follows one Latina/o/x family’s journey to accept their gay son and begin to understand how to support him within the family and out in the world. The series grew out of our 10 years of experience working with the families of Latina/o/x LGBTQ people and tackles real situations that families experience. We hope the series will reflect our community and provide hope and information to LGBTQ people and their families.
In the first episode released in 2017, Miguel comes out to his mom by telling her he wants to go to the prom with his boyfriend. We watch as she struggles to accept this news and how it affects Miguel. Entre Nos returns this week with a new episode and new episodes will be released every Tuesday for the next 9 weeks. In the new episodes we meet a teacher at Miguel’s school, an extended family member, and Miguel’s friends.
Entre Nos is not only built from community experiences but also written, animated and voiced by Latina/o/x LGBTQ people and their family members.
