Gabby Rivera’s TED Salon Has Reached Over 500,000 Views

Featured on the TED homepage, Gabby Rivera’s TED Salon on writing America Chavez—the first queer, Latinx super hero—has reached over 500,000 views (and climbing.) She explains how growing up as a queer Puerto Rican in the Bronx informed America’s narrative: “that myth of having to go it alone and having to be tough doesn’t serve us. America Chavez is a whole superhero, and she still needed a team of support to help her find herself.”
