For the past five years, Hispanic Federation has presented FUERZAfest, a multidisciplinary arts festival focused on Latinx LGBTQ+ stories with the goal of inspiring recognition, visibility and respect for the people who transgress gender and sexual norms.
Queerantine FUERZA is the digital version of FUERZAfest. We pack all the greatness and variety of the in-person event into this spellbinding abridged virtual experience. We are bringing talent from around the U.S., Argentina, Mexico and Puerto Rico.
The Equality Act would provide consistent and explicit anti-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people across key areas of life, including employment, housing, credit, education, public spaces and services, federally funded programs, and jury service. Make your voice heard on this critical issue. Take Action #Equality Act click here for ways to help.
WHAT IS MAY 17?
The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia was created in 2004 to draw the attention to the violence and discrimination experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex people and all other people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities or expressions, and sex characteristics.
The date of May 17th was specifically chosen to commemorate the World Health Organization’s decision in 1990 to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder.
The Day represents a major global annual landmark to draw the attention of decision makers, the media, the public, corporations, opinion leaders, local authorities, etc. to the alarming situation faced by people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities or expressions, and sex characteristics.
