MISS EL/LA 2019

Please support El/La's 5th Miss El/La on Friday, June 14. We believe that coming together in community to laugh, love, and celebrate our spirit and beauty is fundamental in restoring our energy and ability to fight the long fight. Please support us, join us, and celebrate with us!

El/La is unique in the country, as we provide a holistic family-style safe space for transgender Latinas (translatinas) where they can access culturally competent services and resources (across their intersecting identities, i.e. ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation) in Spanish.
