The 41 List: 41 role models in the Latina/o LGBTQ community
In 1901, 41 men were arrested, beaten and eventually disappeared for being gay/bi. Their names were put on a list that condemned them and their families to a life of ridicule, shame and pain.
Today, The 41 List highlights 41 role models in the Latina/o LGBTQ community who demonstrate that we can be successful and live our lives “out” and open. Those featured also represent a small sample of the diverse professional backgrounds, generations, genders, geographic regions, and Latino backgrounds that make up our community.
We hope that by sharing these 41 amazing stories, we can inspire our community and future Latina/o LGBTQ generations to keep dreaming and work hard to reach their goals.
