Daniel Hernandez, Jr.

Growing up poor, gay, and Hispanic in America and with recent political actions in Arizona portraying the state as a haven for intolerance, the rise of a gay Hispanic hero in the middle of a sometimes hostile environment is a story that offers us lessons for our future as a country increasing in diversity.

Hernandez talks about his difficult journey overcoming discrimination in language, ethnicity, poverty, and sexual orientation, and why he loves being an American.
