“In the Latin community, a lot of these subjects aren’t touched, they’re taboo,” Estefan, 65, shared with Wallace. “People see — but they don’t want to talk about it, they don’t want to see it.”
“艾米丽, 我想, would feel comfortable coming out to me,” the Cuban superstar said of her musician daughter, 27, who revealed that Estefan was “reluctant to have her come out to her grandmother” before her death, in an episode of 红桌谈话: 埃斯特芬一家.
“We’ve been very very open about the support for the LGBTQ community our entire lives and at the same time, I had a mother with ulcerative colitis that even if I brought up a bill — or something that was not even important — would get very upset,” she added about Gloria Fajardo, WHO 死在 2017 aged 88.
“We’re all just families trying to get through the difficult moments in life,” 她继续. “Life is complicated, life is tough.”

Ahead of the family’s series premiere back in 2020, Estefan — who has been married to Emilio Estefan, Emily’s father, 自从 1975 — told PEOPLE how excited she was to collaborate with her daughter and her television host-model niece Lili Estefan, 55.
“We should be shooting by March, and all three of us are so excited because we get along very well,” Gloria said. “It’s three generations of women with our own points of view which may surprise people who think they know what we will say.”
“The girls and I will talk about everything from motherhood to spirituality, social media and sexuality,” 她补充说. “My daughter Emily came out last year, so I think this is a good topic for families to hear because sex is a subject they don’t like to discuss.”
For National Coming Out day in 2020, Emily shared an encouraging tribute for all of her fans.
“Be you. Be kind. Be better,” 她写了. “Be open, be careful if you feel unsafe, be LOVE. Anything else is icing … Happy love day… because that should be every. 单身的. Day.”
