Honor 41 is a national Latinx LGBTQ online, 501 c3 non-profit organization that celebrates, documents and promotes the Latinx LGBTQ Community.
The word “Honor” means pride in English and Spanish.
The number 41 has a derogatory connotation in Mexican culture. For over 120 years calling someone “41” or associating anyone or anything with that number labeled them maricon/joto which in English translates to calling someone faggot/gay.
By adopting 41 in our name, we reclaim the negative, oppressive power associated to the number; we educate others about this important moment in LGBTQ history; we honor their legacy; and celebrate our own lives and contributions to our communities.
