While most people would not associate a gay individual with a conservative family, this is nothing more than a misconception. Rios is the perfect example of how the two can coincide, as she is proud of her sexuality and comes from a very religious family. She was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness and her family is very deeply concerned with their religion. Although it took a while for her family to realize that her sexuality was simply a part of her, they are now incredibly supportive. She attributes this to her Mexican heritage, as she feels that family is of the utmost importance to Mexicans.
