“Latinx” is a gender-neutral term used in lieu of “Latino” or “Latina” to refer to a person of Latin American descent. The MFA and our community celebration partner, Amplify Latinx, have used this term in an effort to be more inclusive of Gen X and Z, and the LGBTQ community. During Hispanic Heritage Month and beyond, we continue to embrace the diversity of cultures and generations within the Latin American community.
