‘SALIR DEL CLOSET’, NO DEBE SER UN EVENTO TRAUMÁTICO DICEN EXPERTOS

Los recientes episodios que llevaron a varios jóvenes homosexuales en varios estados del país a suicidarse, debido no solo al rechazo sino al acoso que experimentaron en sus respectivos centros de estudio, dejan al descubierto que la falta de respeto hacia la comunidad gay puede empujar a tales extremos.

Uno de esos casos es el del joven universitario Tyler Clement, quien se suicidó saltando de un puente en Nueva Jersey el mes pasado luego de que su compañero de cuarto lo grabara teniendo relaciones íntimas con otro joven y lo publicara en internet.

De la misma manera lo hicieron otros dos niños, uno de 13 años que se suicidó en el condado de Kern, y otro que cursaba el octavo grado en Texas.

“Cuando jóvenes homosexuales, bisexuales o transgénero enfrentan la difícil decisión de ‘salir del closet’ es un momento sumamente difícil para ellos, lo que les provoca una gran depresión y el miedo a ser rechazados por sus seres queridos. [Eso] es lo que los lleva a considerar el suicidio”, explicó Ricardo Martínez, psicólogo con practica en Pasadena, quien aconseja a las familias con un miembro homosexual que quiere “salir del closet” que sigan varios consejos.

BREAKING NEWS: Judge orders 'don't ask, don't tell' injunction

SAN DIEGO -- A federal judge issued a worldwide injunction Tuesday stopping enforcement of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, ending the U.S. military's 17-year-old ban on openly gay troops.

U.S. District Court Judge Virginia Phillips' landmark ruling was widely cheered by gay rights organizations that credited her with getting accomplished what President Obama<http://www.whorunsgov.com/Profiles/Barack_Obama> and Washington politics could not.

U.S. Department of Justice attorneys have 60 days to appeal. Legal experts say they are under no legal obligation to do so and could let Phillips' ruling stand.

The federal government is reviewing the ruling and has no immediate comment, said Tracy Schmaler, spokesman for the Department of Justice.

Phillips declared the law unconstitutional after a two-week nonjury trial in federal court in Riverside and said she would issue a nationwide injunction. But she asked first for input from Department of Justice attorneys and the Log Cabin Republicans, the gay rights group that filed the lawsuit in 2004 to stop the ban's enforcement.


The Latino Equality Alliance is proud to commemorate National Coming Out Day.

On October 11, 1987, over half a million people participated in the March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, a demonstration to raise awareness of the LGBT rights movement and to remember those who had died from AIDS.  

Since 1987, National Coming Out Day is observed to promote equal rights for lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgendered people (LGBT) everywhere.

 


La Alianza Latina por la Igualdad se enorgullece de conmemorar el Día Nacional de Salir del Clóset.

El 11 de octubre de 1987, más de medio millón de personas participaron en la Marcha sobre Washington por los Derechos de Gays y Lesbianas, una manifestación para dar a conocer el movimiento de los derechos LGBT y recordar a aquellos que habían muerto de SIDA.

Desde 1987, el Nacional de Salir del Día Fuera se observa para promover la igualdad de derechos para lesbianas, gays, bisexuales y personas transgénero (LGBT) en todas partes.

Coming Out as Undocumented

  Coming out

Coming out was one of the hardest things Viridiana Hernandez, a 19-year-old student from Grand Canyon University, has had to do. It has been nearly a year since Hernandez was able to
openly say to her a college professor that she is undocumented.

“I am undocumented and unafraid,” Hernandez said proudly while camping out in front of Senator McCain’s office in Phoenix, AZ for the 11 day in a row, asking him to once again support the Dream Act.

She is amongst a dozen other activists who are calling themselves the “Dream Army” and who are advocating for both military and education reform to include a pathway to citizenship.

The existing parallels between the queer and the immigration reform movements has created a “coming out” experience for undocumented students across the nation, with many feeling scared of what the repercussions might be if they declare their immigration status.
