DIY: Papel Picado

The craft of Papel Picado consists of delicate designs cut from tissue to create bright and fragile patterns that celebrate life and tell the story of the dead. To keep the Dia de los Muertos tradition alive through art, Trucha made some RGV inspired Papel Picado templates for you to cut out and use to decorate your altar.

LGBTQ+ Center Awareness Day

October 19th is the national day of awareness for LGBTQ Centers that provide vital resources for our communities. Locally, the Rio Grande Valley is lucky to have groups and organizations that cater to the social services, youth support, medical treatment and entertainment of LGBTQIA individuals.
