Monday, February 8, 2016 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

As this groundbreaking collection of essays attests, gay and lesbian activism is alive and thriving—on its own terms—in the Latin-American community. Fourteen activists chronicle their struggles for identity and acceptance, recounting their personal experiences and their public roles in founding and joining organizations to raise awareness and fight for equal rights. Join Letitia Gomez, a cofounder and executive director of LLEGÓ, the first national Latino/a LGBT organization, and her co-editor Salvador Vidal-Ortiz, a sociology professor focusing on women’s, gender, and sexuality studies at American University, along with contributors Moisés Agosto-Rosario, director of the treatment education, adherence and mobilization division of the National Minority AIDS Council, Laura Esquivel, author of the bestselling Like Water for Chocolate, and José Gutiérrez, founder of Latinos en Acción and the Latino GLBT History Project.
