    Dang, this is exactly the kind of thing I've been looking for. And a slack channel on top of that?

    This is awesome.

    Hey Pablo, Congrats on this side project launch. I believe it will give much needed recognition and place to come together for all fellow Latino designers.

    I saw this somewhere else as well, maybe in your tweet.

    Keep spreading the love & awesomeness..

    Hey @Pablo, congrats! That's a great initiative :)

    A detail from performance point of view: Scrolling lags a bit. It can be annoying at times. I think it's due to the hover effect during scroll. You could cancel the event when scrolling or cancel it altogether.

      Hey, Nacho! Thanks for sharing that! You're right, performance is not great. But I think it's more because of the huge amount of people that is being loaded. Gonna start adding pagination or lazy loading. If that doesn't help performance, then I'll see if I remove the hover effect. Thank you!

      X is a variable in this case. LatinOs/LatinAs (he or she) X = both Not sure if is the right answer but I always assumed this when people use x like this. :)

        You're totally correct! Latinx is the gender-neutral alternative to Latino, Latina. ❤️

        I see. I don't know how well known the x thing is so it could help if they highlight it (so stylise the name to make the x stand out) or explain it somewhere. Otherwise it sounds like an edgy startup name.

          I added an explanation on the About page, Christian. Thanks for your suggestion :)

        I just want to point out that it's all, not both. The reason to use "latinx" rather than earlier terms such as "latin@" is that "latinx" acknowledges that people may not identify as male or female — truly gender-neutral, as Pablo says :)

    Great to see this, and also great to have a resource I can point people to in order to find Latinx designers!
