VOZ (voice in Spanish) is a bi-annual print and online publication founded by Valeria Ghersi Valdivia that highlights and celebrates Latinx talent and stories, without ignoring the ongoing issues faced by the Latinx communities. VOZ is by and about Latinxs, those who stayed in their country, those who have travelled far from it and those who are part of its diaspora. VOZ does not merge all Latinxs but instead applauds our differences.
In the first issue of VOZ we reminisce on the life and legacy of Peruvian fashion illustrator Reynaldo Luza, speak to six Angelenos about what it’s like growing up Mexican American in LA, talk to three talented Latinx fashion designers —Krystal Paniagua, Diego Gama and Stephanie Uhart— about their latest collections, meet the traders from the Latin Village fighting against the demolition of their market and listen to many more important voices.
Welcome to VOZ, an authentic representation of the Latinx community.
