Lanzamiento WEB de la Guía para padres, madres y familiares de LGBT “AMO A MI HIJ@, RESPETO A MI HIJ@” #FRV
La sociedad ha ido evolucionando humanamente hablando. ¿Eso es verdad?, hablando de la Comunidad de Lesbianas, Gays, Bisexuales, personas Trans e Intersex (LGBTI) la discriminación comienza en sus casas.

Cabe destacar que el problema se debe a estar mal preparado, mal educado y a mentirnos al decir “no soy homofóbico”, siempre y cuando el homo, trans es de otro… ¿Qué pasa si es nuestro?... la cosa cambia. Nace el miedo, la confusión, el rencor y… la necesidad de entender y amar. De ahí nace la idea de la guía “Amo a mi hij@, respeto a mi hij@” que ha sido hecho con el apoyo de la Embajada Británica en Venezuela y Fundación Reflejos de Venezuela. Con la autoría de Elena Hernáiz Landáez, la colaboración de Gerardo Márquez, Rafael Vanezca y Ana Margarita Rojas, la ilustración de Mariam Prato.

La Guía Educativa para Padres, Madres y Familiares “Amo a mi hij@, respeto a mi hij@” se encuentra en su versión on line en la página de la Fundación Reflejos de Venezuela http://www.fundacionreflejosdevenezuela.com desde el 17 de mayo.

Así como la versión actualizada 2014 del “Manual Educativo para la Diversidad”, en ellas se tendrá una herramienta para prevenir la discriminación por homofobia y transfobia en nuestros hogares, escuela y sociedad.

¡Esperamos sea de su agrado y le pueda ayudar a continuar acompañad@ de su hij@!

Elena Hernáiz Landáez

Hi! i am a guy of 21 years old, i am gay by the way, or maybe not, the thing is that i have a wonderful and lovely boyfriend, that tell me everyday that if i want the moon, he will go there for take it and give it to me, but, my parents are a total issue for me at this moment, the idea that i have about be straight come from they, because they are always remind me, that they will enjoy just if i'll be with a girl, so this situation make me feel so confuse, so hard confuse that i had to take a brake with my boyfriend, because i feel that i need have my mind more clear, so, what kind of love you choose? the inconditional one or the conditional? is a very easy choise if you just think in this, but feel it, being in the middle of the situation is other thing.
And the things that they tell me are so stupid, so inssensitive that make me wanna do something about it, about us, about our childrens, about our future. I am ending my career of Environmental Engineer, and the jobs in this country are not so easy to find, but at the minimal instant that i will have, i promise that i gonna be an activist, and i gonna make it for all of us!

LGBT life in Venezuela is complex but relatively free and evolving in a positive way. Nowadays National Ombudsperson Office, lead by a female former congressperson and political ally to President Hugo Chavez, Gabriela Ramírez, has been working since five years ago on lgbt issues. Today, Feb, 23th, GR has publicly announced the possibility of creating within the institutional structure of her Office of a national instance devoted to lgbt human rights protection.

Soy Miembra Fundadora de la Asociación Civil sin fines de Lucro: DIVAS DE VENEZUELA, su actual Directora Ejecutiva y Presidenta.

Nuestro grupo fue creado el 03 de Marzo de 2004 debido a la falta de organizaciones específicas que defendieran la igualdad de derechos para la comunidad Trans venezolana y mundial. En este sentido nos sentíamos igualmente desprotegidas/os en todos sentidoS, sin una estructura organizada para la reivindicación de nuestros derechos al estado venezolano. Inicialmente participan en este proceso Desiree Pérez (Trans fem) Albertina Angulo (Trans), Y Yul Sarria (Homosexual).

TRABAJAMOS Básicamente en:

• Incidencia Política
• Proyectos de Ley en beneficio a nuestra comunidad
• Contracultura a través de las artes (danza, pintura, fotografía, etc.), asambleas públicas, foros itinerantes.
• Campañas de educación y concienciación sobre las personas sexo-género diversas (Trans, Lesbianas, Homosexuales, Bisexuales, Intersexuales…)
• Realización del primer programa radial (DIVERSIDAD HOY desde el año 2007) de corte informativo, opinión y variedades de la comunidad sexo-género diversa nacional e internacional, efectuado en una radio comunitaria denominada RADIO 23 en frecuencia modulada.
