The National LGBTQ Task Force, the oldest advocacy group of its kind in the United States, has appointed Mayra Hidalgo Salazar to a national leadership position. As a teenager, the Costa Rican-born activist organized young immigrants in Florida. In her new position, Hidalgo says she will seek full recognition and acceptance for her community, which she considers highly discriminated against and attacked. She also asserts that “trans, queer, black, colored and indigenous people are at the forefront of social change.” You can listen to the full interview on the Monday, June 14 edition of Línea Abierta.
