For many Latinxs, it can be frustrating trying to find themselves faithfully reflected in mainstream media. That’s because to this day, we’re erroneously seen as a homogenous group – meaning that so much of what defines the Latinx community is overlooked. Thankfully, through social media, it’s become easier to celebrate all aspects of being Latino. Over the last few days, #EmbracetheLatinx sprung up to show the diversity of our community.

One of its earliest uses came from Kayla Rodriguez, who tweeted it for LGBTQ Pride Month. But the hashtag’s being used to celebrate all of the Latinx community – regardless of gender identity, country of origin, race, or religion. Check out a small selection #EmbracetheLatinx tweets – and the accompanying selfies – below and then go and check out this excellent hashtag on Twitter:
