When the weekend rolls around, most bestie hangouts look like this:
A bunch of Latina celebrities – including Gina Rodriguez, Eva Longoria, and Rosario Dawson – came together for what seemed like just a casual hang.
Jaina Lee Ortiz, Gloria Calderon Kellett, Eiza Gonzalez, Ivonne Coll, Yara Martinez, America Ferrera, Justina Machado, Anjelah Johnson-Reyes, Andrea Navedo, Melissa Fumero, Isabella Gomez, and Stephanie Beatriz were also in attendance.
"Brooklyn Nine-Nine"'s Stephanie Beatriz explained that the get-together was a lunch organized by Ferrera and Rodriguez.
"I met some amazingly smart and funny women that day, and as we all talked, we collectively agreed that there’s so much power in supporting each other. Representation matters. All of us want to see all kinds of Latinas in more leading roles in television and film, as well as producing and directing," she said.
They may have just started a #FiercelyLatina revolution.
"I think it might’ve been Rosario who suggested the hashtag 'fiercely Latina', and all of us loved it," Beatriz added. "I hope that other women who identify as Latina can rally around #fiercelyLatina as a way to describe themselves: a celebration of the rich span of cultures and colors that being a Latina can look like, and as a call to shine like the fierce, bright lights that they are."
Point taken, ladies.
