Latinx Heritage Month

Entwined hands with latin flags.

Published September 18, 2020

Each September 15-October 15 the United States recognizes the contributions and influence of Hispanic Americans to the history, culture and achievements of the United States.

Featured Events

Join us as we celebrate and commemorate the rich cultural history and contributions of the Latinx community. Latinx is a general-neutral term to refer to a Latino/Latina person. The "x" replaces the male and female endings "o" and "a" that are part of Spanish grammar conventions.

9/15 - 10/15 Celebrate with Sound

During the day in the Intercultural and Diversity Center we will be playing Latinx music, so come and enjoy.

Fri. 9/25 Movie Night - Real Women Have Curves

Join us in the Student Union Theater at 6:30 p.m. to watch and discuss the Latinx Film, Real Women Have Curves.

Real Women Have Curves is a stage play by Josefina López and is set in a tiny sewing factory in East Los Angeles in September 1987. It is marked by the issues of gender politics and the Latina immigrant experience. 

Tue. 9/29 Paint Night

Students can stop by the IDC (240 Student Union) before 5 p.m. and pick up pre-packaged paint and canvas kits. Once the kit is picked up, join us on Zoom to paint together.  Please register on our UBLINKED page.

10/6 Machismo and the Queer Community

Discuss the intersectionality of the LatinX and LGBTQ+ communities. Mostly focusing on the cultural concept of Machismo as that is a major obstacle for those coming out, and for the LatinX community in general. However this will be a discussion so those who identify with either community, or both can speak on their experience and those who don't can learn.

10/9 Latinx Student Panel

Join the discussion on what it's like to be a Latinx student on UB's campus. This program provides a Latinx student perspective from current UB undergraduates representing a variety of majors and interests and includes strategies they have found useful to navigate their paths.
