#SomosLatinx — Refinery29 Celebrates Latinx Heritage Month
In our series #SomosLatinx (or #WeAreLatinx) we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month — or as we refer to it, Latinx Heritage Month — from September 15 to October 15 by exploring some of the many contrasts that make our community so rich, persevering, and diverse. In the spirit of fostering community and breaking down old, divisive barriers,
we use the term “Latinx” at Refinery29. The term, which is still
fraught for some, is believed by others to be a more inclusive and intersectional alternative to “Latino,” “Latina,” or “Hispanic.”
