The Femeniños Project: Literature and Film for Queer Latino/x Youth and their Familias

To support the continuation of my Femeniños project, a children’s book and short film series highlighting the experiences of queer Latino/x boys and the families who bear witness to their lives. This project began in 2017, as a collaboration with the San Francisco-based children’s book author Maya Christina González, and has expanded to work with the Los Angeles-based independent film director Adelina Anthony, and now the Oregon-based Hollywood film director Omar Naim.
