Bienvenidos a Casa
LISTEN TO THE ENTIRE SHOW

Telenovelas and radio novelas are wildly popular all over the world and in the United States, and now the dramatic Latin soap operas are starting a dialogue about sexual orientation. “Bienvenidos a Casa” or “Welcome Home” is a dramatic radio novela that addresses the problems Gay and Lesbian teens face in Latino communities that are deeply rooted in religion and conservative family values. Radio Bilingue, a non-profit bilingual satellite station, worked with the “Family Acceptance Project” to use the highly popular format as a means for social change.

BBC Radio’s Alex Collins reports on the Latino LGBT reality and how this new radio program can help change lives and family relationships.
