This project is an attempt to bring LatiNegrxs, Blaktinxs, Caribenxs, AfrxLatinxs, et. al. into conversations around sex/uality. Often we are not included completely, and only presented as either ethnically Latinx or racially Black. The questions below center demographics, resources available and used by LatiNegrxs, and forms of sex/uality information from various people in our communities.
Responses to this survey are 100% confidential and your responses will not in any way be connected to your identit(ies) unless you agree to have Bianca contact you via email for additional survey questions. If you chose not to share your contact information your response will be anonymous. This information will help begin to shift conversations and begin to provide LatiNegrxs with the opportunity to share our own experiences. The findings will be made available by July 2013 at LatinoSexuality.com and folks are welcome to use the findings in their own work to bring awareness, inclusivity, and justice to conversations about LatiNegrxs and our sexuality needs. The citation will be a communal citation and not one solely attributed to Bianca as this is a communal effort.
This is phase one of a budding multi-layered project centering LatiNegrxs and sex/uality. Additional parts of the project includes media, workshops, and community building among LatiNegrxs. If you are interested in joining other parts/phases of this project please reach out to Bianca at
