Rostros Diversos

For a few months now, I’ve been working on Rostros Diversos, a web platform dedicated to celebrating the lives and stories of LGBTQIA individuals.

The objective is to show the true faces of diversity, in order to tackle stereotypes and help promote inclusion.

Each individual is invited to share a short -under 200 words- story and a photo of themselves. While everyone is free to write about whatever they find suitable, participants are encouraged to share something that is unrelated to their sexual orientation or gender identity, in order to show that there is much more to LGBTQIA individuals than that.

Rostros Diversos was launched on May 17, 2017 (IDAHOT), and it reached its 100th participant on July 17 of that same year.

Aside from the website, it may also be found on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram.

If you wish to participate, you may do so by filling out the form that is found here.

On May 17, the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT), President Enrique Peña Nieto became the first President of Mexico to receive members of the LGBTQ community in his residence, Los Pinos.

I had the opportunity to be part of the team organizing the meeting, and to be there on the day.

That same morning, President Peña Nieto also announced an initiative that would make equal marriage constitutional in all 32 states of Mexico.

You can find the complete initiative HERE.

You may also find an article that I published a couple of days after, HERE.

 

Web series against bullying

On set - Bullying series

 

For the past few months, I have been directing a web series against bullying and discrimination. We shot our pilot “Porcelain” at the beginning of April with a fantastic crew that worked relentlessly throughout the pre production process and particularly during the two day shoot on a weekend.

Our goal is to shoot 12 more episodes of this series, which will be targeting audiences across Latin America.
