This week on Alt.Latino, we take to the streets of Queens, N.Y., with activist Francisco Ramirez to celebrate gay Latinx pride and remember the 49 lives lost at the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Fla. The attack hit a place that is practically sacred for Latinos, and especially members of the LGBT community: the dance floor.

For this episode, we collect stories of love, hope, freedom and joy on the dance floor.
