As we continue our Listening series this week, we talk with Aida Cubano, a Hispanic artist, digital marketing professional, wife, and mother who has some fascinating stories! Aida tells us about her experiences dealing with feeling “in-between” due to implications that she is “too feminine” to identify as gay and “not Hispanic enough” to be truly Puerto Rican. She shares the ways she’s navigated these tricky spaces, including what it was like to come out, her bumpy path of having children as part of a same-sex couple, and her reactions to the current worldwide protests.
