"The hardest part of coming out is to know that you're about to hurt someone that you love," she says <a href="http://youtu.be/K2FQER7c3vU">in a video</a> featured on the <a href="http://familiaesfamilia.org/talk/video/">website of Familia es Familia</a>, which aims to help Latino families accept their LGBT loved ones.
The civil rights effort Familia es Familia, or 'Family is Family,' had its coming out party at the National Council of La Raza convention in Las Vegas. It aims to increase acceptance of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people in the Latino community, and more than 20 Latino rights organizations have signed on.
