DVD

We are proud to announce the availability of “Tres Gotas de Agua” (Three Drops of Water). In this short documentary, three Latina immigrant mothers talk about their children’s coming out processes, conveying powerful messages about unconditional love, shared responsibility and acceptance of LGBTQ people as part of Latino families. The three stories, in Spanish with English subtitles, can be viewed together, or as a separate videos. Please share the link to our YouTube page widely with family, friends, colleagues and community networks. Our goal is to make the videos easy to access so as many people as possible will see them.

These videos are intended as an educational tool:

  • to spark discussion and dialogue in the community and schools
  • to support families of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) youth
  • to build awareness and acceptance of LGBTQ youth as part of our families.
