Hello! My Name is Elizabeth– I am a Queer Latina and proud of it! It has taken me a lot of work to get to a point where I can say that. In fact, it is much like attending an AA meeting where you come to terms with who you are but in a distinctly dichotomous way I am stating my truth, and my self- acceptance.

I was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley. I come from a traditional Mexican family who assimilated to the “American” culture without forfeiting its roots. Growing up in this environment had its pros, and cons. I was proud

to be Mexican, but I could not be proud of being queer. I got married at 18 thinking this might cure my queerness. It didn’t, it only complicated my inner turmoil. For years I tried to pray the gay away, no dice! I was queer, and it wasn’t going to change.

I had my daughter at the age of 21. Becoming a mother changed my whole world and my perspective on life. I didn’t want to raise my daughter in an environment that was homophobic and intolerant of other cultures and religions. Something had to change. That “something” was a someone, me!

I made one the hardest decision a parent has to make, uprooting my child’s life, and filing for divorce. I took my daughter, and started a new life for myself and for her. It’s almost 10 years since I made that decision, it hasn’t been easy, but it has been worth it!!

I look forward to sharing more of my experiences, in hopes that some can find solace in knowing that they are not alone in their journey.

We don’t all have the same struggles, but we do have one commonality:

We are Qulture.
