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.

SOBRE EL MES DE LA HERENCIA HISPANA
La observación se inició en 1968 como la Semana de la Herencia Hispana durante la
presidencia de Lyndon Johnson y fue ampliado por el presidente Ronald Reagan en
1988 para cubrir un período de 30 días a partir del 15 de Septiembre hasta el 15 de
Octubre. El día 15 de Septiembre es importante porque es el aniversario de la
independencia de varios países de América Latina como Costa Rica, El Salvador,

Our event covers demographics in
every age category, orientation,
ethnic & economic bracket.
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 back in the closet for fear
of persecution.
