Javier Saucedo is a born leader. He was born and raised in Santa Ana, a city in the very conservative Orange County's very conservative. Growing up there weren't really any services for the Latinx LGBTQ community. So as a grassroots movement, him and a couple of friends created numerous organizations including the, currently running, De Colores Queer Orange County. De Colores Queer Orange County is an organization that supports first-generation Mexican families and their kids who come out as LGBT and hosts monthly support meetings at the LGBT Center OC in Santa Ana.
Additionally, Javier has worked tirelessly advocating for PrEP, HIV prevention and education. Today, Javier is on to a new journey as Program Supervisor for the TransVision Program. His hope is to put the T in front of LGBTQ+ and provide the service and care to the community that is and will continue to be his family.
