A La Familia

Published on Oct 8, 2013
A part of A la Familia, a project under HRC's Religion and Faith Program, "Before God: We are all Family" tells the story of five religious Latino families who have lived with the sting of repressive church teaching about sexual orientation and gender identity.

A La Familia HRC LGBT Latino
A La Familia is a bilingual project that promotes inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) 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 Latinas/os 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 LGBT 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.
