Celebrating Mujeres & Latinx Representation in Media!
Comedy by Latinas. For Everyone.
Latina. What comes to mind when you hear that word? Strong, resilient, fierce, brown, beauty, hot, fire, chica, taco, wait who the F said that?! We are more than what we see portrayed in the media and Latinaish TV was created to celebrate the whole spectrum of who we are. Latinx culture has influenced so much of the American mainstream and the truth is, we too have been influenced by our non-Latinx counterparts. Our Latinaish TV aims to celebrate all of you, whoever that may be, without judgement. If you wanna be a chola, be a chola! If you wanna be basic, cheers betch, we got you. So come join the party, take a break and have a laugh on us. We promise you don’t even have to be Latina to get it. Well, maybe sometimes.

Season 1 of “Many Medicines”
When PsychoSocial and Latinaish TV decided to collaborate, there was a lot of talk around how to portray the daily struggles people deal with. We all need different things when it comes to wellness and healing. “Many Medicines” is a series of comedic episodes that highlight just how diverse healing practices can be. In this way there are many medicines for healing and wellness. We hope you enjoy our first collaboration together! We will be releasing one episode every Friday for the next 5 weeks!
