Latinos Recall The First Time They Felt Represented In Movies And TV
We recently asked you guys to tell us about the first time you ever saw yourself represented on TV (or in movies, if those are more your speed). Yup, we want to know — even if the answer is “NEVER!!!!”
Here’s what you bbs had to say:
It’s all about life between languages:
It’s so rare to see that kind of inter-generational family relationship portrayed in a way that feels REAL.
Selena (and beyond):
Javier is all of us, tbh:
Lois is the everywoman:
Because, after all, Latinos don’t only relate to other Latinos.
Our great big TV fam:
Do you relate to any of these? Are you still waiting for an “that’s so ME” moment? Do you have any Netflix recs for us? We want to knooowwww.
We still wanna know when (or if) you first saw yourself reflected on TV. Let us know below, on Facebook, or in a love letter.
