October is nationally recognized as National Hispanic Month. It began as a way to promote the history, culture and contributions of Hispanic Americans and more specifically we should celebrate all those from, and in, Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. It's time to pay homage and appreciate the colorful cultures, rich histories, and the diversity. The LGBT Hispanics are no exception...and are part of the celebration as well. Here's to some of my favorite colorful queens, who definitely bring and add to the flavor of the drag world. Not to mention broken their own barriers.
