The Honor 41 list was created by Alberto Mendoza to bring visibility to and honor the contributions of Latina and Latino TBLGQ people.
On the inaugural Honor 41 list we have five transpeople represented on it in the persons of Bamby Salcedo, Arianna Inurritegui Lint, Maria Roman, Danielle Castro and Isaac Gomez.
Nominations will open soon for the 2014 edition of the Honor 41 list, so if there are BTLGQ Latina/o folks you think deserve to be on the next list, when Alberto sends me the word, you TransGriot readers will also know when, where and how to send those nominations in.
I have a few peeps I'm definitely going to suggest for next year's list. And naw, they are not all Texans either.
As part of the process of being named to the Honor 41 List, the honorees also submitted videos. So take the time to get to know our trans Latino/a brothers and sisters who were honored on this inaugural list and hope to see many more Honor 41 trans honorees in future editions of it.
