NCLR to Honor Acclaimed Activist, Producer, and Actor at Annual LGBT Reception
Attendees at the 2014 NCLR (National Council of La Raza) Annual Conference were invited to participate in A Night OUT with NCLR: Celebrating LGBT Champions and Allies, the annual LGBT reception honoring leading advocates and organizations within the LGBT Hispanic community on Sunday, July 20.
This year’s reception, presented by Prudential and sponsored by AT&T, Hilton and American Airlines, honored award-winning actor, producer and activist Dan Guerrero, son of Chicano music legend Lalo Guerrero. Throughout his accomplished career, Guerrero has fiercely worked to bring more positive Latino images to the screen as a casting director, writer and, for the past 15 years, as a producer of diverse network and cable television programming. He has also been an outspoken supporter for LGBT rights, personally sharing his own experiences examining his identities as member of both the LGBT and Latino communities in his critically acclaimed autobiographical play “¡Gaytino!”
