Dropping jaws in dark lipstick, bright, primary colors and lethal heels, the 23-year-old was introduced as the new face of the iconic brand’s Series.5 campaign on IG. SelGo gives the brand new life with these shots in a vampy, gothic-like look…and of course, THAT BAG.
No matter your preference, how you like them, how you eat them, tacos are a way of life. They represent where we’re from and to be honest, they are not going anywhere — they will remain part of our life.
Gerald Flores understands the taco goes beyond just a dish, it’s a lifestyle. In 2014, the Corpus Christi native was trying to figure out what to wear, when an idea went off in his head.
“Like many Latinos, tacos are a huge part of my life. They represent my culture and so much more. Back in 2014, I was looking for a taco shirt for myself and I couldn’t find one that I would want to wear, so I decided to design my own,” said the taco lover. “That’s how Taco Gear® was born and it’s been a crazy and fun journey ever since.”
mitú is excited to partner up with Taco Gear® in our mitú mercado where you’ll find a wide assortment of Taco Gear® products.
We are featuring some of Taco Gear’s® most popular t-shirts, sweatshirts and trendy bucket hats.
If you’re a taco lover you know that when someone offers you a taco, you just eat it and that’s exactly what this Taco. Just Eat It. Longsleeve tee says.
This tee takes a spin on a popular brand and makes it our own. You can shop this tee (that’s already making me hungry) on our site available in a unisex fit for only $29.99.
The free Selena-themed outdoor concert in support of immigration rights is going bi-coastal. After the success of their summer show headlined by Colombian-American star Kali Uchis in New York, the event is coming to Los Angeles. The organizer, artist manager, and activist, Doris Muñoz of Mija Management, is bringing the event to the West Coast just in time for LA’s Day of the Dead celebrations on Nov.1.
Solidarity For Sanctuary is a non-profit aimed to amplify the voices of immigrant communities through music, advocacy, and the arts.
Since 2017, Muñoz has been producing Selena for Sanctuary, a concert to help undocumented immigrants. Her mission remains to donate all proceeds from her concerts to undocumented people who need funds for legal fees, to submit DACA applications, etc. This year the entire proceeds of the show went to Make The Road NY. The organization’s mission is to provide “legal and survival services,” develop “transformative education,” and help with “community organizing.”
“When our parents can barely afford to take a day off of work to go to the lawyer’s office, how are they even going to pay that lawyer,” Muñoz told Remezcla. “I think in the Donald Trump era, we’re sometimes afraid of who we’re talking to and having a brown body, you can feel like a target,” Muñoz added. “To be in a safe space like this, surrounded by people who believe in fighting for your community with you, is really beautiful.”
Sanctuary for Selena is set to take place on Los Angeles’ iconic Grand Park.
The concert will be taking place on the first of November, just in time for Downtown L.A.’s Día de los Muertos celebrations. Angelenos will celebrate the ancient party of the dead with a week of altars, remembrance, and traditions that will be wrapped up on the last day, with free music performances by an all Latina lineup.
Organizers of the event took to Instagram to announce the LA-based Selena for Sanctuary.
The non-profit Solidarity for Sanctuary announced the West Coast concert and lineup on an Instagram post. “We can’t wait to see our friends, family, and community gathered at @grandpark_la for this year’s Grand Park’s Downtown Dia de los Muertos!” read the colorful post featuring an illustration of Selena wearing her iconic high rise pants and bedazzled bustier, surrounded by cempasúchil, the flower of the dead. “On Friday, November 1st Selena for Sanctuary will be taking over in front of City Hall for a free concert featuring an all-female line-up of L.A.-based Latinx artists and SO much more, welcoming immigrants and allies together in celebration and solidarity. It’s an honor to be at Grand Park, a place that along with @musiccenterla has made it their mission to provide a packed calendar of thoughtful and exciting cultural events for all Angelinos to enjoy.”
The aim of Selena for Sanctuary is to raise money and awareness for immigrant issues that are impacting millions of lives.
Born of a series of benefit concerts she put together in Southern California in 2017 called Solidarity for Sanctuary, Muñoz’s dance parties raise funds to help immigrants navigate the bureaucratic minefield that is U.S. immigration policy to set them on the path to citizenship. In June, the NYC party was headlined by Kali Uchis, the Colombian-American singer with a critically acclaimed debut LP (2018’s Isolation) and collaborations with Gorillaz, Juanes, and Daniel Caesar. The platform must have liked having women at the front of the lineup, so they’ve confirmed an all-female lineup for the event in L.A. which is great news for the Latina artists.
Here’s the line-up of the concert and it is pretty lit.
It is all about the female empowerment with some of the best Latina acts in the music industry. Here’s who will be shining at the Selena for Sanctuary concert.
The Honduran-American Lorely Rodriguez will be headlining in LA’s Selena for Sanctuary. Empress Of shifts from English to Spanish to express the vulnerability that lies in both languages. The East LA native will be heading back home to LA for the show, after a long tour of the US.
This Tijuana native is a ska and punk veteran. Bastida broke into the scene plating keyboard and vocals for the political band Tijuana No.1. These days, Ceci is off on her own. Nowadays, she has a new alt-pop sound with a hint of Tijuana No.1’s political energy.
Lizette Gutierrez’s sound is a mix of ranchera, cumbia and punk. She is reinventing traditional Mexican sounds and injecting them with her own identity as a queer brown woman.
Better known as Pero Like’s “Pocha Concha,” Murillo is a multi-talented singer and songwriter. She is most comfortable singing covers which she has shared on YouTube in the past. No wonder Selena for Sanctuary tapped her to sing a Selena song at the event.
For Andrea Silva, the woman behind Loyal Lobos, this event’s mission is very close to her heart. Born in Colombia, Silva immigrated to the US as a child. She often references her experiences as an immigrant and as a feminist in her music.
August Eve had already collaborated with another Selena for Sanctuary headliner, Empress Of. The LA native is taking the stage herself this time with her Old Hollywood-style music.
