Cafecito Virtual con Carlos Rodríguez Díaz: por una comunidad Latina vibrante

December 14, 2022

“Como buen puertorriqueño aprendí a tomar café de dos formas: café con leche –oscuro, más café que leche–, pero también disfruto del café negro. Un buen café sin nada adicional, es un disfrute, y dependiendo cómo vaya el día decido cuántas tazas me tomo”.

Conversar con Carlos Rodríguez Díaz, igual que el café puro, también es un disfrute. Estamos agradecidos de que compartiera un rato con nosotros para contarnos sobre su quehacer en el área de la sexualidad, el trabajo comunitario, las personas LGBTIQ+, y la equidad para la salud como profesor asociado de la Escuela de Salud Pública, del Instituto Milken en la Universidad George Washington, y presidente de la Sociedad Para el Estudio Científico de la Sexualidad.

Estamos seguros de que vas a disfrutar este episodio del Cafecito Virtual tanto como nosotros, así que sírvete una taza y disfruta de esta linda charla entre Carlos y nuestra directora ejecutiva, la Dra. Gabriela Lemus.

***English version***

“As a good Puerto Rican, I learned to drink coffee in two ways: coffee and milk –dark, more coffee than milk–, but I also enjoy black coffee. A good coffee, without anything else, is a pleasure, and depending on how the day goes I decide how many cups I drink”.

Talking with Carlos Rodríguez Díaz, just like black coffee, is also a pleasure. We are grateful that he took the time to tell us about his work in the area of sexuality, community work, LGBTIQ+ issues, and health equity as an associate professor at the Milken Institute School of Public Health at the George Washington University, and president of the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality.

We are confident that you will enjoy this episode of our Cafecito Virtual as much as we do, so grab a cup of coffee and enjoy this nice chat between Carlos and Dr. Gabriela Lemus, MLU executive director.
