QLatinx is an Orlando based grassroots community-led racial, social, and gender justice organization dedicated to the advancement and empowerment of Orlando’s LGBTQ+ Latinx community.

Founded in response to the mass shooting and act of hate that occurred on June 12th at Pulse nightclub, during the LGBTQ+ establishment’s Latinx-themed night, that robbed our community of 49 lives and left many more physically and psychologically wounded. We honor the memory of the 49, nearly half were of Puerto Rican descent; while many more were Cuban, Dominican, Ecuadorian, Mexican, Salvadoran, Venezuelan, Afro-Latinx, and from other Latinx communities. Some were Black. Some were undocumented. Over half were under the age of 30, the youngest victims having just turned 18 years old.

El/La Para Trans Latinas

El/La is an organization for transgender Latinas (TransLatinas) that works to build collective vision and action to promote our survival and improve our quality of life in the San Francisco Bay Area. Because we exist in a world that fears and hates transgender people, women and immigrants, we fight for justice. We respond to those who see us as shameful, disposable or less than human. We are here to reflect the style and grace of our survival, and to make new paths for ourselves.

El/La es una organización de mujeres Latinas transgéneras (translatinas). Fomentamos visión y acción comunitaria para promover nuestra supervivencia y mejorar nuestra calidad de vida en el área de la bahía de San Francisco. Luchamos por justicia porque vivimos en un mundo dónde existe odio y miedo para las trans, las mujeres y los inmigrantes. Respondemos a aquellos que nos ven como vergonzosas, desechables o infrahumanas. Estamos aquí para reflejar el estilo y la gracia de nuestra supervivencia, y para abrir nuevos senderos en nuestras vidas.
