The State of Trans Health


On November 29, 2016, The California Endowment and TransLatin@ Coalition presented an evening of conversation, art, and celebration centered around supporting the health of the Trans community.


The event served as the launch of TransLatin@ Coalition’s new report, "The State of Trans Health: Trans Latin@s and Their Health Care Needs," and a culmination honoring a cohort of ten Trans folks who completed Be DOWN, a leadership development program. A panel conversation around the report’s key findings included Bamby Salcedo, Gretta Moreno, Jacqueline Caraves, Cris Salamanca, and Queen Victoria Ortega. The celebration featured music from Mariachi Arcoiris de Los Angeles, the country’s first LGBTQ+ mariachi, and artwork by rommy torrico and Chucha Marquez.
