Burlesque Queen Delysia LaChatte, AfroPinup & I collabed! Yay!

This summer the lovely @AfroPinup organized this shoot, with her doing makeup, the ethereal Delysia LaChatte, queen of the NYC burlesque scene as model and photography by me. Wardrobe: Delysia’s own.

Delysia was so sweet and gracious. And check out the red heart bags from her own line, LaChatte’s Meow, below. Available on her website HERE.

Here are a few shots…

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. 

 

Honored to be doing a TEDx talk in Mexico City!

This november 2nd I will be doing a TEDx talk in Mexico City with Cynthia Garcia Galindo on non-physical abuse against women and #MaybeHeDoesntHitYou. You can check out details at TEDxMexicoCity.com and the facebook event here. I’m psyched and excited for this opportunity and to visit Mexico for the first time.
