For straight ally Marcos Martinez, supporting and working with the LGBTQ community is a no brainer. Currently the director of nonprofit Casa Latina, Martinez had worked as the director of Seattle's Entre Hermanos, a non-profit focused on supporting and promoting the needs and rights of the Latino LGBTQ community. "Even with all of the advances and all the gains and all the wonderful legal victories that the LGBTQ community has enjoyed, there is still a lot of work to do," Martinez said in a video for Seattle Pride last year, acknowledging the key fact that promoting and fighting for LGBTQ rights helps the causes of minorities and marginalized peoples from all communities.
