For those not involved in the LGBT Latino community it can be tough to keep up with the political on-goings let alone the terminology that comes with the territory. So here’s what’s going on with immigration and gay rights at the moment, in the short: 

Last week, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to approve the "Gang of Eight" plan, which would in part help create a path to citizenship for undocumented workers over a 13-year period. For immigration reform advocates, this was an immense victory.

For the LGBT community, the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is the current discussion on the table. In June, the Supreme Court is set to issue its decision as to whether or not DOMA is constitutional.

So how do they overlap?
