The UNLV Department of Art welcomes Latinos Who Lunch to the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art.
On June 5, 5:30 pm, podcast hosts Babelito and Favyfav (both UNLV alums) will join Dr. Erika Abad for a conversation about Latinx representation in the media and Las Vegas.
Latinos Who Lunch is a podcast that was created to provide a digital media platform that reflected the intersectionality between queer, Latinx, and Spanglish voices in an Anglo-dominated podcast world. FavyFav and Babelito approach the topics of identity, food, family and history in a responsible yet humorous way. Latinos Who Lunch intends to blend all these ideas together by placing into context everything from the piñata as a symbol of multiculturalism in Mexico, to the politics of Frida Kahlo as an icon of Mexicanidad. By maintaining visibility, accessibility and a philosophy of de-centering white male dominating cultural practices at the core mission of their content, Latinos Who Lunch strives to open a dialogue with their listeners about topics that many podcasts will not address. http://www.latinoswholunch.com/
