A La Familia is a bilingual project that promotes inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people within communidades Latinas. It was created por comunidades Latinas, para comunidades Latinas to:
transform conversations among familia about sexual orientation, gender identity and la Biblia
strengthen coalitions within comunidades Latinas
embolden a new generation of lìderes Latinxs of faith
All A La Familia trainings are conducted with the support of and in cooperation with local organizations and congregations.
Our new short film, Before God: We Are All Family is a film that explores the experiences of LGBTQ people of deep faith -- who have been told there is no place for them in their church of origin -- and the experiences of their parents and siblings -- who have been cruelly asked to choose between su familia y su relgión. See the preview below.
