Latine People, What TV And Movie Moments Made You Feel Like Your Culture Was Finally Seen?

Those moments that low-key make your heart swell with pride are everything.

I don't know about y'all, but when I see something coming out that's representing the Latine community, me siento muy excited.

It's no secret that for years, and years, and years, this community has been underrepresented in television and film. There have been strides in diversity, but it hasn't been enough to level the playing field.

And when there has been representation, it has often been bogged down in problematic stereotypes.

Yet, we understand the importance of representation and what it can do to inspire the next generation.

Benny 'The Jet' Rodriguez meant a lot to many baseball-loving Latines, for example.

Years later, Encanto would strike a very emotional chord with many in the Latine community.

One Day At A Time brought the big feelings and tears, along with the lighthearted fun, and it meant a lot.

Latines of the BuzzFeed Community, we want to hear from you! What were some major TV or movie moments where you saw yourself and your culture represented in a meaningful way?

Share those moments in the comments below! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. Some responses might be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post.
