As LatinoRebels.com grows and becomes one of the country's top independently-owned new media companies for the Latino community, we will never forget our roots and our vision: to promote and celebrate the world that we love. A bilingual and bicultural world that believes in alternative and unfiltered voices, respectful points of view, and comunidad. Starting next week, we will begin to turn over a little corner of our site to feature on a weekly basis three pages we love: Cuéntame, Pa'lante Latino, and Remezcla.
Why are we doing this? That is easy. We LOVE reading these pages.
They make us think. They make us laugh. They make us want to sing out loud as we work. They inform us. They challenge us. And they make us proud, proud to be a part of a new wave of content that is relevant, forward-thinking, and fresh. They represent some of the web's best Latino content today. This is not a partnership, nor is it a distribution deal. We are just sharing these pages' excellent content and celebrating what they offer. We are big fans, and we think our readership would feel the same.
So, next Tuesday, we will begin to feature Cuéntame, the ¡Latino Instigators!
Ever since we started our page last year, we have been following this page and we are so glad we did. Who is Cuéntame? We will let them tell you:
Cuéntame means: Count me or tell me your story – and we ask everyone to do so!
Cuéntame is a place for Latinos and the public in general! Whether YOU are a sports fan, movie fan, activist, artist, student, parent, organizer, Latino or not, award winning novelist, astronaut, actor, painter, or anything else, all are welcome here! Tell us your story!
The official page of the ¡Latino Instigators! Through short video, docu-series, interviews from our studio, the streets, or sent to us by you, we unite voices and create a powerful community.
From tackling unjust immigration laws to exclusive features on Latino arts, music and film you will connect directly with fellow activists, artists, writers, figures and much more!
On Thursdays, we will feature Pa'lante Latino, because the "only way is forward." PAL has become an excellent source of forgotten Latino history, highlighting stories that don't make the history books. They do impeccable research and they are also an amazing group of people. They value community service, social good, and positive advancement for the US Latino community.
And finally, Fridays will feature Remezcla.
One of the top Latino culture, music and entertainment pages in the world, Remezcla is a unique page because it has local pages in five of the top Latino markets in the US. We have always loved the idea, and they are class acts. Here is what you need to know about this group:
Founded in 2006, Remezcla.com is an innovative local guide to cutting-edge Latin culture in Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, and San Francisco. Always with an independent view and an eye out for what’s next, Remezcla has established itself as the source for underground and emerging trends in Latin music, visual arts, film, nightlife, food, and more. Through its online city guides, customized print publications, and lifestyle events, Remezcla offers an organic and relevant approach to reaching young and trend-setting Latinos.
Here are to the three pages that we love. We are thrilled to shared your content on our site.
And who knows? We still need to fill Mondays and Wednesdays. Soon there might be other great pages to feature.
