Abstract

What is it like to be a Latin@ in the LGBTQ+ community? Being a part of such a complex intersectionality creates unique challenges and perspectives for such individuals. Using an extensive literature review, we work to explain the challenges of such an unexplored intersectionality as well as the developing positive trends. Latin@s in the LGBTQ+ community more commonly live in collectivist micro-communities where their personal beliefs and expressions are suppressed for the "betterment" of the "whole" and where being "macho" is expected. Despite such obstacles, there are people and organizations working together to empower Latin@s who are LGBTQ+.
