Hispanic Heritage Month 💃🏽
Sooo the month of Hispanic Heritage month has arrived can we get a woot woot. I'm so excited to do this segment and give a special shout out to my Latinas and Latinos. I do feel that Black culture and Hispanic culture has so many similarities. From out ethnic food, saucy music taste, and of course fashion and makeup trends, brining all the teas and flavors to this world of monotony.
National Hispanic Heritage Month is recognized in the United States beginning September 15 and ends on October 15 commemorating the contributions and influence of the Hispanic culture in the United States. Hispanic Heritage Month is meant for recognition, education, and celebrating Hispanics similar to Black History Month in February, or LGBTQ Pride in June, and I'm here for it. May sound cliche but my first introduction to Hispanic culture was introduced by no other than the talented Jennifer Lopez in her role as the beautiful American singer-songwriter Selena Quintanilla-Pérez. Also "referred to as the "Queen of Tejano music", her contributions to music and fashion made her one of the most celebrated Mexican-American entertainers of the late 20th century". I remember watching in complete awe at her combination of drip and sauce in her dance moves all while performing in very fashion-forward Esque costume design.
We want to take the time to celebrate the culture and innovations Hispanics have brung our culture rather that is the food we eat, the clothes we wear, or our makeup trends. Thank you for contributing to the groundwork of our society to add a little more spice to the melting pot that is the United States.
