Latinx Heritage Month 2015

What is Latinx?

"Latinx" refers to a pan-ethnic group of US-residing descendants of Latin Americans. Latinx was created because the 'x' isn't a traditionally genderized letter in Spanish and therefore includes all people of all genders, and people who identify as agender. It is pronounced "la-teen-ex" or "la-teen-ess." From September 15 to October 15, Latinx Heritage Month celebrates these peoples and their heritage.
