Quinceañeras hold profound cultural significance within the Latinx community, as the event celebrates the transition from girlhood to womanhood. Leading up to my 15th birthday, I took an untraditional approach to this staple event in my culture. My name is Victoria F. Vega, and I am a proud Latina with roots tracing back to Puerto Rico and Uruguay. Now, picture this: it’s the eve of my 15th birthday, and the air is buzzing with anticipation for my quinceañera. But here’s the twist — my journey to womanhood is about to take a detour through Queer Street, and I don’t even know it yet!   Pre ..read more

As a teenager, I had no idea that I was a lesbian. I didn’t grow up knowing any openly queer people, and my family was staunchly Catholic. Looking back, all of the signs were there: I wasn’t dating, I had insanely close relationships with my girl friends, and my bedroom walls were adorned with photos of pop divas in low-rise jeans and low-cut shirts—there wasn’t a single boy band member in sight.
