In Issue 18, #TheLatinaPress takes on Heritage Month and the good, bad, and the ugly of the Latinx experience.
Out of all that makes “Andor” special, its portrayal of Latinidad might just be the most important thing for our communities.
By making their stage names sound more “American” (aka what white people perceive as being from the US), Latinx actors often avoid getting pigeonholed as the stereotypical criminals, janitors, maids, etc., even if the practice contributes to our erasure.
In these dark time, I want to visit a future where together we “boldy go where no one has gone before.” You know? So join me in celebrating these, my favorite Latinxs in space.
