Resistance. Oppression. Acceptance. Intersecting identities. Undocumented, queer and unafraid.

These were all commonly overheard phrases at a DeColores Queer Orange County event in Santa Ana earlier this month.

On June 11, the third annual conference was held at the El Centro Cultural de Mexico in Santa Ana with the theme “Mi Casa Es tu Casa: Empowering our Homes and Transforming Our Communities.”

Workshops hosted by volunteers included discussions about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) allies, homosexuality and religion, queer rights, the media and the reclaiming of the gay Latino identity.

There was also a discussion roundtable called La Familia 101 in which participants were encouraged to bring their parents or relatives to discuss matters relating to the LGBT community and their experiences.

This year’s conference had its biggest turn out, in which there were over a hundred participants throughout the course of the day.
