When We Love Someone We Sing to Them

Cuando Amamos Cantamos. A reclamation of the Mexican serenata tradition, follow the story of a young boy who asks his father if there is a song for a boy who loves a boy.

Carlos, The Fairy Boy

Carlos, El Niño Hada. A Carnival tradition in Panama expands when a supportive abuela encourages her grandson to follow his fairy boy dreams!

When We Love Someone We Sing to Them reframes a cultural tradition to include LGBTQ experience. In this book we learn about the Mexican tradition of singing to family and loved ones through one small boy who naturally assumes the tradition includes him and his experience.

Watch a tradition expand as limitations are lifted to include everyone, all the way to remembering Xochipilli, the Mesoamerican deity of creativity, dance and song.

But when Carlos wants to join his cousins as fairies on the queen’s float he finds out that boys are not allowed. Thankfully, he has a brilliant abuela with a bright idea!artwork from Carlos, The Fairy Boy/Carlos, El Niño Hada by/por Juan A. Ríos Vega
