When I went to New York for the GLAAD POC Media Institute training last year, little did I realize I was going to depart from it not only better equipped to do media appearances on behalf of our community, but I left it with a few new friends and allies.
One of the people I met during that training was a lovely Latina from Florida via Peru named Arianna Inurritegui Lint.
Arianna is VP of the TransLatin@ Coalition and pops up regularly on Spanish language media to talk about trans issues from a Latina perspective. This accomplished lady was also one of the five trans people named to the inaugural Honor 41 list that spotlights the contributions of TBLG Latin@ people.
And today is her birthday.
Happy birthday sis, and may you celebrate many more of them!.
