September is a magical month of the year- the weather starts cooling, leaves turn beautiful warm hues, and best of all, we celebrate the beauty of Latinx culture with Latinx Heritage Month! Comprised of a wide range of countries, races, languages, traditions, foods, and art, the term Latinx encompasses a multitude of complex identities coexisting beneath the Texan border and in the beautiful islands of the Caribbean. To understand each other is to truly love your neighbor, whether they look like you or not, and sharing stories is the best way to step into someone else’s shoes. Here you will find a range of stories from Latinx curated with love to give you a special look into what it means to be Latinx, in all of it’s glorious forms. What truly bonds the Latin American people is passion, ambition, grit, courage, and most importantly love.
