They talk about how QLatinx was created in the aftermath of the Pulse nightclub shooting on June 12, 2016. Chris shares about the intense pain and healing that took place, and discusses the longstanding systemic oppression faced by the LGBTQ+ Latinx community – the barriers to access culturally competent mental health services; marginalization from the white, middle-class LGBTQ community; and lack of protection under federal and state law. This is a powerful story of how LGBTQ+ folks of color came together to create a powerful grassroots racial, social, and gender justice organization dedicated to the advancement and empowerment of Central Florida's LGBTQ+ Latinx community and the continued work they are doing. I hope you enjoy the conversation.   QLatinX Website & Social Media Links https://www.qlatinx.org/                                  http://www.facebook.com/qlatinx http://www.instagram.com/qlatinx                 http://www.twitter.com/qlatinx   Christopher’s Email & Social Media Links christopher@qlatinx.org                                   http://www.facebook.com/chrisjaycuevas http://www.twitter.com/chrisjaycuevas         http://www.instagram.com/chrisjaycuevas...
