Laura Sermeño and her baby boy celebrate the end of her cuarentena, or quarantine. The tradition, common throughout Latin America, requires new mothers to rest under the care of their relatives for some 40 days after childbirth. The period ends with a mother-child herbal bath and a massage. This ceremony was prepared and guided by @doulajennysilva. This photo was shot #onassignment for @natgeo with @ivankphoto.

She was a contestant in RuPaul’s Drag Race before being eliminated in the television show’s ninth season. Her performances are a tribute to classic Latina beauty. She has payed homage to María Félix, a Mexican film actress who was a central figure in the Golden Age of Mexican cinema. Most of his crew is Latino.

Hundreds of activists rallied from MacArthur Park, to Eco Park to Olvera Street in Los Angeles on September 10th, 2017. They were protesting against the Trump administration's efforts to end DACA. This would phase out protections from deportation for roughly 800,000 immigrants brought into the country illegally by their parents. In the photo a Trump supporter screams with a megaphone at the protesters passing by to go back to where they came from.
