BIENESTAR prioritizes the elimination of stigma and discrimination against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) individuals and their families. The agency is proud to announce the launch of our latest anti-homophobia initiative in commemoration of St. Valentine's Day. We believe as a society we should be celebrating love, diversity and the true meaning of self -love and friendship- which increases the self-esteem and over all well-being of any individual regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
The famous TV host and Journalist of Univision Daniela Ganoza, joins forces with BIENESTAR to fight homophobia and discrimination by serving as the spokesperson for this initiative. Our goal is to continue to collaboratively work with other entities such as social media to utilize all resources to educate every single family and household to end stigma and discrimination so that all individuals are treated with respect and dignity regardless of whom and how they love. Daniela stated, "I'm proud to be the spokesperson for this campaign; many youth are still committing suicide as a result of being bullied because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. No child deserves to grow up feeling ashamed of who they are," emphasized Ms. Ganoza.
Oscar De La O, President of BIENESTAR stated that, "in the Latino community unconditional love and family are important values, but when the children are rejected for being gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, it is a breakdown of our beliefs. We hope everyone will join Daniela and BIENESTAR in our efforts to stop homophobia" concluded Mr. De La O.
BIENESTAR truly believes that joining forces with LGBT allies to continue to educate our families about stigma and discrimination of LGBT individuals is not just an LGBT community issue, but a social issue that impacts all families regardless of race, social class and/or religious beliefs and values.
