"DPAM uses the term "Latinx" as a nonbinary, gender-inclusive alternative to Latino or Latina for people of Latin American heritage living primarily in the United States. The term acknowledges people who identify along the gender spectrum. The “x” is a variable that is intended to signal support for marginalized individuals. It is important to note that not every artist in our upcoming exhibitions or programs identifies as a Latinx artist, some prefer national, racial, and/or ethnic designations of identity. DPAM respects and supports all forms of self-identification."
