“The first film of its kind, the groundbreaking El Canto del Colibri features Latino immigrant fathers discussing acceptance of their LGBTQ children.”
   Latin Live

“In the media, the Latino/a culture is profoundly underrepresented. Most of the stories one often hears are negative in connotation and involve immigration or racial profiling, according to Serafín Méndez-Méndez and Diane Alverio of the National Association of the Hispanic Journalists. Because of this fact, El Canto del Colibri is such an unprecedented and important documentary for the Latino/a community and GLBTQ culture.”
   GLBT Reviews

“El Canto de Colibri is a study in love and acceptance that should be used at every PFLAG meeting, religious conference, parenting class and political campaign.”
   Terrence Moss, Gay Essential
