This was a lot of fun. Listen to Ep. 6 of Latinos Out Loud, featuring me!

October 6 I had the fortune of being invited onto the mega talented Juan Bago and Rachel La Loca’s podcast Latinos Out Loud. These folks are hilarious and doing great things as a Latinx comedy troupe, Listen HERE.

Back from Foro de Mujeres Lideres de Mexico in Monterrey, Mexico.

On October 9 I had the pleasure and honor of speaking at Foro de Mujeres Lideres Mexico, at Tecnologico de Monterrey in Mexico. It was my first time in the country and everyone was so kind and thoughtful. I met some amazing, inspiring women. Ever grateful for having been flown out there. 

After our discussion on #MaybeHeDoesntHitYou with Cynthia Garcia Galindo (who is truly a gift to the world), it was humbling to hear women tell me they hadn’t realized the things that were happening to them were abusive and they deserved better.

In a month Cynthia and I will be at TEDx mexico in Mexico City, talking on #QuizaNoTePegue as well. 

Never imagined that hashtag would bring us to this but I am elated.

A visual depiction of the people in my mentions and on the street. It’s so repetitive I had to do it.

On today and the *other* side of the ACA Obamacare debacle.

After tons of fucking arguments with people who don’t get that I can’t fear losing what I never had, I just put it in comic form. You can “not all people of color were left in the dust” about this but the fact remains, the ACA left the most vulnerable uninsured too.

Antiblack Latin American Bingo!

Every time they start up I end up reposting these Bingo cards I made a few years ago because it is all painfully repetitive. I’m like WIN A PRIZE, PENDEJXS!
