One of the first things I advocated for is that there are a number of people in the Latino community who don't dress as women but are women. You know? These loquitas who have their woman's name, they don't take hormones but are fierce tipas. They have to be respected as women. That happens a lot in the Latino community. I was bringing these issues to the forefront and people were realizing what was truly happening in the community. Because Proyecto ContraSIDA, you know, we were in a fantastic location: 16th and Mission was truly the Mecca of transsexualism and faggotry.
