It’s times like today that call for leadership like Marco Quiroga.

Although kind and soft-spoken, he unapologetically and confidently speaks loudly for those who have less of a voice in our community. He collaborates with leadership who came before him in the struggle of both the Latinx and LGBTQ communities, while still challenging and educating the status quo on what is still left to do and for whom.

Through past homelessness, immigration status limbo, as well as the typical and not-so-typical struggles of a young queer Latino in America, he perseveres, leads, motivates and is a remarkable agent of change for not just Orlando but for this country.
