Paquita La Del Barrio Picks Death over Gay Parents

Paquita La Del Barrio Picks Death over Gay Parents

Screen shot 2010-03-15 at 11.49.20 PMIf you haven’t been following this story yet, Paquita la del Barrio, the well-known Mexican rancheras signer, is standing against same-sex adoption, saying, “I’d rather see a kid die.”

The 62-year-old singer told Escandalo TV that, “It’s not in my taste that a poor creature should be adopted by them,” (see video below via Blabbeando).

According to KNBC, the reporter asked her which would she prefer: That a child die of hunger in the streets and lonely, or two human beings give him love and food?

Paquita responded: “That he die.”

She explained it’s better if the child dies instead of that “lifestyle.”

Bienestar, a Los Angeles Latino community service and advocacy organization, is leading the charge against the vocalist. The group is demanding that homophobic attacks made by the popular singer stop. Group members are also asking for a balance of media coverage about the topics of same-sex marriage and the adoption of children by gay and lesbian parents.

Does anyone agree with Paquita? If you do, Mariana and I want to talk to you on our podcast.
