Stirring Campaign Sparks an “Honest Conversation” About Being Latino, Gay and HIV+

By Sarah Seltzer at AlterNet

A new campaign called “An Honest Conversation” from Cuéntame has produced some amazing videos of Latino LGBT citizens telling their stories:

“From bullying to abuse, struggle to triumph, this ground-breaking series aims to break taboos within the Latino community while changing paradigms within our fast-shifting demographic. With these powerful, direct stories Cuéntame is starting a provocative and honest nationwide conversation that we hope will begin with your own discussions at the Holiday or Sunday dinner table and into the lives of many Latinos in America.”

In the below video, a gay HIV+ military veteran tells his heartrending story of courage in the face oppression at home, on the streets, as a soldier: “I’m tired of not being able to just say this.”
