qvProps to Latina Magazine!

In its November 1999 issue, Latina ran perhaps its most QV-friendly issue to date. In an article entitled, "My Child is QV, Que Hago?" writer Leila Cobo-Hanlon profiled several QV children and their relationships with their parents. The writer also encouraged all parents whose children might come out to them as QV or lesbian to give their children love and understanding.
In the same issue, Latina also profiled Latino actor Wilson Cruz (whom qvMagazine interviewed in qv9 "Romance"). In the interview, Cruz spoke openly about being an out and proud Latino.

It is truly encouraging to see mainstream Latino media run articles that are positively-written and supportive of QV and lesbian youth. qvMagazine extends its gratitude to Latina on behalf of the entire Latino community.
