Community Resource Update: Spotlight on Entre Hermanos

August 30, 2002

Entre Hermanos originally was formed 12 years ago by a group of friends from the Latino(a) community who shared common ideas and goals and wanted to create an environment of support and leadership to strengthen the community. After many years of community support and working with the current Board of Directors, Entre Hermanos Organization obtained its 501(c3) status in October of 2001.

The Entre Hermanos Organization's mission is to provide support; develop leadership; strengthen the Latino(a) gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender community; and provide a cultural, social, and emotional environment of safe health, creating a model appropriate to the needs of our Latino(a) GLBT community.

Entre Hermanos is currently working on these programs and events:

  • Atrevete: This program provides education and prevention of HIV/AIDS and STD's for men who have sex with men (MSM). Program Manager, Hugo Ovejero,

  • Las Sinverguenzas: This program was created by women for women to provide support and social activities. Program Coordinator, Emma Moreno,


  • Noche Latina: A social program that is held at Neighbors Club in Capitol Hill every Sunday. This program/event was created to bring together our Latino(a) community in general. Coordinator, Sergio Miranda,
