Students “Come Out” as Gay and Undocumented
LOS ANGELES, CA: More than 100 people filled the Village courtyard of the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center on Sunday, September 19, 2010, to raise community awareness and scholarship funds for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) undocumented UCLA students at a reception, “Standing With the Students: Out, Proud, and Undocumented.” Critically, there are more than 300 undocumented students enrolled at UCLA. Since the 32% fee hike earlier this year, one in five of these students has had to withdraw from college because they could no longer afford the fees and others have lost scholarship opportunities because of their status.
A broad coalition of LGBT organizations sponsored the event, including the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center, Latino Equality Alliance, FAIR, HONOR Fund, Immigration Equality, API Equality-LA, BIENESTAR, the Human Rights Campaign, Roots of Equality and The Wall/Las Memorias. Organizations and individual sponsors may contribute online at www.LibertyHill.org search “UCLA DREAM FUND”.

Los alumnos "salir" como gays y no documentados
On Sunday, September 12, 2010 various Latino Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) groups of Los Angeles participated together for the first time during the East L.A. Mexican Bicentennial Parade, one of the oldest and largest in the country.
The parade, which is televised in English and Spanish, has thousands of people in attendance along its route on Cesar Chavez Boulevard. It has been organized annually by the Mexican Civic Patriotic Committee since 1959 and has been endorsed by the Mexican Consulate and the County and City of Los Angeles.
Latino Equality Alliance (LEA) founding organizations BIENESTAR and Lambda Legal organized the contingent while it was supported by various LGBT and Latino groups, amongst them the Honor Fund, Coalición Translatina@, LUCES, and VOCES.
LGBT groups and their allies marched along the route without knowing how they would be received. “At first the participants felt a little apprehension, we wondered if they would welcome us,” said Francisco Dueñas, of Lambda Legal and board member of the Latino Equality Alliance.
Por primera vez un LGBT contingente participaron en el desfile del este de Los Ángeles para conmemorar el Bicentenario de la Independencia de México.
