The Q-be

We are in search of Latinx/e LGBTQ+ identifying artists that can tackle the Q-be challenge. 

What is the Q-be?

The Q-be is an immersive experience where artists of all disciplines can use the power of storytelling to celebrate and embrace queerness through movement, music and words in a 10-15 minute piece, performed inside of a cubic 6 foot installation.  Interested?

Latinx Performance Ensemble Inc. presenta el estreno en Estados Unidos de la comedia romántica EL GOL DE ALEX del dramaturgo español Antonio Hernández Centeno, protagonizada por Josean Ortiz y William Pérez, bajo la dirección de Josean Ortiz. 


EL GOL DE ALEX es una comedia romántica en la que un periodista de deportes conoce a través de las redes sociales a un futbolista que pocos minutos antes acaba de meter el gol de su vida. La obra es un gol contra la homofobia. Un cóctel explosivo, divertido, ágil y actual; donde se demuestra que los hombres de verdad saben amar y jugar al fútbol.


EL GOL DE ALEX cuenta con el auspicio de Hispanic Federation’s FUERZAFEST Latinx LGBTQ+ Arts Festival.

Hispanic Federation Hosts First Act Convening, Announce New Latinx LGBTQ+ Grantees


SAN FRANCISCO—Hispanic Federation (HF) hosted its first Advance Change Together (ACT) convening in San Francisco, California during the National LGBTQ Task Force’s 2023 Creating Change Conference. The ACT convening brought together community-based organizations from across the country to discuss the barriers and issues facing Latinx LGBTQ+ communities and how best to address them. At the convening, HF announced the first grantees as part of the ACT initiative, which will be receiving grants of up to $50,000 that will go toward strengthening their organizations’ advocacy efforts, services, and infrastructure to better serve Latinx LGBTQ+ communities. In total, more than $1 million will be distributed to ACT grantees over a two-year period, half of which has already been distributed since the initiative was first announced in 2022.  To learn more, click here.
