One of the things I love most about Clubhouse is how women and communities of color have created connections and amplified their voices on our platform.
The Latinx voz in particular is multidimensional. Our voces are honest, passionate, and bold in every conversation we speak in. Our stories are powerful and extend throughout so many generations. From our abuelas to primos, the amount of history that is shared will only live throughout time.
Throughout the past couple of years, the word “community” has popped up in various forms, yet this word means so much more when we show up and uplift one another. This is a foundational value of Latinx Culture. As Clubhouse is a platform based all around voice, I wanted to use that power to celebrate the Latinx voz during Latinx Heritage Month. I’d like to highlight a few of my favorite clubs that exemplify the magic that happens when we raise our voces.
We’ve been spending time with these creators to understand their goals and the vibe of their rooms — some are casual chats, others more programmed, but each is a wonderful place to hang out. Each of them have some special shows and rooms planned for the next month ahead. Get to know more about them below.
