All Def expands its verticals with All Def Latino, the channel where you’ll get all things, Latino, from entertainment to news
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–All Def, a Culture Genesis company, is one of the largest Black-owned publishers on Facebook and YouTube. Through their contributions to culture, comedy, and entertainment, All Def has been able to create substantial opportunities for BIPOC talent. Their new channel, All Def Latino will feature shows, podcasts, and relatable content centered around Latinidad.
All Def Latino, led by comedian and Creative Director Cris Sosa, will launch with their shows Latino AF, American Wannabes, and Talk-O-Tuesday. Sosa’s goal with All Def Latino is to expand people’s perception of Latinidad and what the culture and identity truly consist of. As Latin talent himself, Sosa understands the importance of responsibly representing Latinx people and culture.
American Wannabes is a weekly podcast led by Jerry Garcia, Jesus Sepulveda, and Christian Zaragosa where they talk about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness/American dream. As Mexican-Americans Gracia, Sepulveda, and Zaragosa tap into their experiences and identity and share how they navigate through life.
According to the 2020 census, Latinos accounted for 51.1 percent of the country’s growth, rising to 18.7 percent of the U.S. population. With being one of the fastest-growing populations in America, the representation of LatinX people and culture has expanded. “I’m not phased about fitting into people’s narrow perceptions of what/who a Latinx person is. I’m very excited to share different stories through All Def Latino. I want us to have more conversations about Latinidad while celebrating each other,” Sosa said.
There couldn’t be a more ideal time to launch All Def Latino than during Hispanic Heritage Month. Content will consist of a mixture of comedy skits, interactive posts, educational/historical content, and much more.
All Def Latino will be launching Latino AF on September 18th to kick off Hispanic Heritage Month, which will be followed by the release of Talk-O-Tuesday. You can catch new episodes of American Wannabes every week on iTunes, Spotify, and YouTube.
