All with one point in common: none of them is heterosexual.
After 2 months of planning, its creators Omar Flores Sarabia and Oscar Anaya Hernández managed to finalize this series of 3 videos that premieres this June 25 at 8:00 PM on the Con Lugar TV channel on YouTube. The following episodes will be released on the 26th and 27th, respectively, echoing the LGBT + pride celebrations.
