About us

The Zero Homophobia/Zero Transphobia (Zero) campaigns were launched in 2019 by the Commission. Zero aims to combat the pervasive issue of homophobia and transphobia within our society, particularly addressing its impact on the Latine/Hispanic community. Our mission is clear: to create awareness about the harmful effects of discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.


We strive to bring homophobia and transphobia to the forefront of public discourse and action at all levels of society through our “Weeks of Action”.  Zero works within policy and healthcare settings, community and arts-based organizations, and most importantly, we spark conversations among families, friends, and local communities. 


Our May Zero Homophobia/ Zero Transphobia Campaign’s Week of Action coincides with the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOBIT) observed every year on May 17. Our November Week of Action corresponds  with the International Transgender day of Remembrance, commemorated annually on November 20.

Throughout the rest of 2024, we are committing to bringing you content and engagement more regularly. If you are an LGBTQIA-Latine organization, business, artist, activist or more and would like to partner with us, get in touch with

We are actively looking for partners among different sectors of society to take the “It Ends With Me”  pledge. This includes:

Hispanic/Latino service organizations
Healthcare providers
Local and national LGBTQ community centers
Community-based organizations
Religious/Church/Spiritual leaders
Elected officials
Hospitals, clinics, community health centers
Colleges or universities, student groups
Medical associations, business associations
& More! 


If you’re the leader or member of an organization and would like to get involved in the campaign, email and let’s get started.




Where do I begin?

You can start by fostering an environment within your organization that doesn’t allow homophobic/transphobic sentiments. Or you can organize an event or initiative for the community you serve. Big or small, let’s create visibility to eradicate homophobia/transphobia.


Below are some resources you can review and/or share with your friends, clients, family members, teams, and community about homophobia and transphobia.
