Puerto Ricans in solidarity & unity with Black Lives Matter

“Así como mi Puerto Rico está de luto por las muertes injustificadas, por la desigualdad y la injusticia permanecemos con el puño en alto (como símbolo de solidaridad y unidad) conectando nuestros corazones a la comunidad negra en Estados Unidos y nuestros hermanos de Black Lives Matter”.

QUEENS THAT SASHAYED AWAY TOO SOON: APRIL CARRIÓN

After leaving the show I was a bit depressed for a while. I felt I had left too early, had disappointed all of the people rooting for and believing in me, so, I figured I should show them and everyone else that I was well prepared for the competition and had what it took to be a contender for the crown. It was a release in a lot of ways, it allowed me to not only show my fans my looks but also gave others a chance to get to know me and think ‘Hey, that’s an interesting queen!”
