Alberto (Beto) Jimenez

Alberto Jimenez, an openly gay Latino, has become an equality activist – something that he did not plan. To fight against LGBT discrimination, especially within the Latino community, he created an “Equality” float for Saginaw’s 34th Annual Cinco de Mayo
Parade on May 4th – the first LGBT-themed float in the Cinco de Mayo Parade and probably the first in Saginaw. Perceptions and PFLAG sponsored his Equality float that took 2nd Place! Alberto is no stranger with the community. He has volunteered for Tri-City Pride Festival for three years, was involved with La Union Civica Mexicana, Saginaw oldest Mexican American organization, and the Mexican American Council where he serves as a board member. Alberto is starting a business called Party Loco to use his creative skills. Thank you and good luck, Alberto.
