Abstract

The purpose of the presentation is to look at the intersectionality between being Latin@ and being part of the LGBTQ+ community. I will discuss some of the obstacles that Latin@s in the LGBTQ community confront, such as machismo and the fact that most Latinos belong to a collectivist culture, which may or may not serve as an obstacle. I looked at various articles that explained the intersectionality between Latin@s and the LGBTQ+ community. Organizations that support Latin@'s in the larger LGBTQ+ community are identified. An examination of how pop culture and celebrities support Latin@s in the LGBTQ+ community was also conducted.
