Somos Familia was founded by two moms from the East Bay (San Francisco Bay Area) with Latino gay and bisexual sons in 2007 to reach out to other families. Our mission is to create support and acceptance for Latina/o/x lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning youth and their families. We envision a world where youth of all sexual orientations, gender expressions and identities are accepted and celebrated by their families and communities. Everyday, children and youth are teased, harassed and subjected to violence because someone thinks they are lesbian, gay or transgender.1 Lesbian, gay and bisexual youth who are rejected by their families have a higher risk of depression, alcohol and drug abuse, and attempted suicide than youth who are accepted or celebrated by their families.2 Somos Familia brings families together to transform this reality.
