She from-the-heart-2-cuevasis an ofrom-the-heart-3-laosutspoken trans-woman who is a former female impersonator; he is a soft-spoken man who works at Valencia college with the peace and Justice Institute, both are part of the LGBTQ, Latinx community – On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we talk about faith — hope — and healing. We are little more than five months past the worst public mass shooting in American history. In this, the third in our five-part series which we’ve entitled From the Heart of Orlando, we will hear the stories of two remarkable individuals. In some ways they are very different, in other ways they share some very common ground. And like so many in our community their stories intersect and weave through the Pulse Nightclub, and that terrible day of June 12th. They will be our teachers today, and we their pupils. Ms. Victoria Laos (pictured, above left), a trans woman and board member of the Contigo Fund, and Mr. Christopher Cuevas (pictured, above right),cofounder and organizer of Q Latin X, they tell their stories – all that and more on this installment of Friends Talking Faith.
