Pride, fun and community-building are the essential ingredients of the LGBTQ Latinx Giving Circle. They epitomize the spirit of welcome through their hosting happy hours and fundraising events in partnership with local gay bars. They use social events to build a stronger, more connected Latinx queer community and raise resources for LGBTQ Latinx organizations.
Our LGBTQ Circle is a critical partner to Latino Community Foundation in helping us fulfill our mission of inclusion and acceptance for our LGBTQ folks. In 2020, they helped us host a Dismantling Transphobia series to lift up the need for acceptance and understanding around gender and identity in the larger Latinx community. This online teach-in was actually our largest virtual event of 2020 aside from the Gala.
