As of January 1st, I have had the honor to preside Spectrum, the LGBTQ and Allies group at the School of International and Public Affairs of Columbia University. Here are the events that we have organized or co-sponsored since then.
In the summer of 2016, I led this video as part of a campaign to support the Equal Marriage bill in Mexico. I had the fortune of having the support of many of my Mexican fellow classmates at Columbia.
President Peña Nieto during the IDAHO event on May 17 at Los Pinos
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.
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.
