LatinoRebels.com is a web property of Latino Rebels, LLC, a private company registered in Delaware (File #4972019). Latino Rebels LLC became an official LLC on April 21, 2011, although our founder Julio Ricardo Varela has been developing independent content since 2008 under JulioRVarela.com.
Our ideas for Latino Rebels came from watching way too many Daily Show episodes, being on social media way too long, listening to too much punk music and devouring the biographies of Zapata, Martí, Albizu, Menchú and so many other Latino Rebels from Latin American history. After the success of JulioRVarela.com, Julio decided to invite a group of Rebeldes who shared the same vision. This link names some of the Original Rebeldes.
Latino Rebels LLC is 100% owned by Julio Ricardo Varela (@julito77 on Twitter), however it is run by many people. The Latino Rebels are a collective of social media influentials, bloggers, journalists, poets, writers, producers, photographers, and business professionals. We all have day jobs and we run this site collectively. The vast majority of our pieces are written collectively by us after we talk about them, share them, and pitch them to ourselves. We also take pitches from our community. No one else tells us what to write about. We are not in any special partnerships with companies or organizations. We are us, and us alone.
We use humor, commentary, opinions, independent stories, cross-links to others blogs, and our social media platforms to share our universe. We do this for the love of the game and to elevate the issues that matter to us and our community. We do compensate contributors, and we don’t make money off this site. Any compensation given to contributors comes from the LLC. Yes, we think paying people is important.
We are a new media site that reflects the world views of about 20 like-minded Rebeldes. We are a site about us. We are independence and mayhem.
We are also one of the thousands of independent Latino sites out there, and we would love to hear from you if you like what you see. We will support any page that shares our vision and our vibe. Also, any of our editorial content can be used or reused, as long as you include attribution to our original link and website.
