Celebrando Nuestro Orgullo, Celebrating Latino Pride (9/28-10/2)!

Posted By Yarimee Gutierrez on September 27th, 2011

Organizer’s Note:

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 – October 15) and in the spirit of supporting our LGBTQ Latin@ brothers and sisters, please join us in celebrating  another Latino Pride!

You can show your support by attending as many of the events below as possible. We know first hand the amount of work that goes into organizing even one event, and it takes the support of our entire community to make sure they are successful. We applaud Boston Pride for supporting this segment of our community and doing their part to provide spaces we can celebrate all of our identities. Of course we also applaud the hard work and dedication of the individual organizers who put in their time, including one of QWOC+ Boston’s own,  Zulma Acosta!

Happy Latin@ Pride! ~ Yari
