Throughout the twentieth century,
clothing has been used by lesbians and
gay men as a means of expressing
self-identity and of signaling to one
another.

The AIDS Epidemic all but wiped out a
generation of Talent, Artists, Designers,
and sent the LGBT community ba
ck in
the closet for fear of persecution.

FAITH, FLOKLORE & FASHION explores
this topic.

ABOUT NATIONAL HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH
The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President
Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to
cover the 30-day period from September 15 through October 15. The day of
September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for
Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and
Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days
on September 16 and September 18, respectively.

BOTANICA (less commonly known as a hierbería or
botica)
is a retail store that sells folk medicine, religious
candles and statuary, amulets, and other products
regarded as magical or as alternative medicine. They
also carry oils, incense, perfumes, scented sprays
(many of which are thought to have special properties)
and various brand name health care products.

These stores are common in many Hispanic American countries and communities of
Latino people elsewhere. As such:

Botánicas now can be found in any United States city that has a sizable Latino/a
population, particularly those with ties to the Caribbean. The number of botánicas
found outside of New York and Miami has grown tremendously in the last ten years.

The name botánica is Spanish and translates as "botany" or "plant" store, referring
to these establishments' function as dispensaries of medicinal herbs. Medicinal herbs
may be sold dried or fresh, prepackaged or in bulk.

Botánica almost always feature a variety of products used in Roman Catholic religious
practice such as rosary beads, holy water, and images of saints. Among the latter,
the Virgin of Guadalupe and other devotional figures with a Latin American connection
are especially well represented. The Catholic Church allows herbal medicine but
prohibits magic and other religions. However, most botánica have products associated
with other spiritual practices such as candomblé, curanderismo, espiritismo, macumba
and santería.

Alternative medical treatments found in botánicas are used to treat such varied
conditions as arthritis, asthma, hair loss, menstrual pain and diabetes. There are also
products that are designed to attract love, bring good luck and financial prosperity,
deflect jealousy and so on
