Youth-Led Group Colectivo 41: Educating Mexico About LGBT Rights

Carly Burns

"Colectivo 41, founded in 2012, is an innovative youth-led program in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico focused on LGBT rights. Through peer education our team of youth leaders advocates for these issues in local schools, organizations, government and rural communities. The core of Colectivo 41’s work is about creating dialogue amongst youth and the larger community about LGBT identities, HIV, and sexuality so that we can live and love without fear of violence."

    Hi Carly! I love what you're doing in Mexico. Any plans to replicate it in other countries?

      Thanks! This is actually a friend of mine's project. Her contact info is on the web link, I'm sure she would love to talk more about it if anyone is interested!
