Pittsburgh as a region has one of the lowest percentages of Latinx residents compared to other large U.S. metro areas. But that isn’t stopping Latinx voices from speaking up about the issues they encounter here and nationwide. Alphabet City in the North Side is hosting a literary event to amplify those voices even further. At Latinx and Proud! Series, four Latinx writers will speak about their work and how it relates to identity, race, gender, politics, etc. The speakers are New York-based poet Denice Frohman, Western Pa. professor M. Soledad Caballero, Pittsburgh writer Tanya Shirazi, and Miami poet and performer Zeca Gonzalez. This is the inaugural program of the Latinx and Proud! Series.
