To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, we’d like to showcase 15 Latinx creators in our Shorts Creator Community who are leading the charge in short-form content and have shown tremendous growth on the platform in the last year. Ranging in content categories from gamifying packing school lunch for her daughter (Unique Daily) to sharing tips to learn English as a second language (Andrés en Inglés), we are thrilled to share this diverse group of Latinx creators who constantly inspire us. Among these Shorts creators, we have UN Ambassadors for Climate Change (Marissa Rachel) and a sister duo, Maria Legarda and Daniela Legarda, who founded HERmanas At The Table, a dinner series to gather, celebrate, and honor Latina women in tech and entertainment.
On October 8, we brought 14 creators – PolyG, Sal Styles, Javi Luna, Sabrina Mercado, TiaLola, Steffany Strange, Evelyn Gonzalez, Unique Daily, Mabell Rodríguez, Maria Legarda, Daniela Legarda, LAXtoLuxury, gabrielabandy, Jessica Flores – to the Rosalía concert at YouTube Theater in Los Angeles. We celebrated these creators by highlighting their photos on the billboard at the theater during the concert. It was a fun evening and full circle moment to sing and dance to Rosalía, who started her journey years ago in the YouTube Foundry program for musical artists.
Earlier on September 22nd, YouTube Shorts kicked off VidCon Mexico with a Shorts Creator Happy Hour to celebrate and welcome Latin creators to the first ever VidCon Mexico. Over 100 creators came together, fostered new connections, and collaborated on Shorts (see Shorts from A bailar con Maga and Juanca Ochoa). Creators were also invited to a private concert with special guest Colombian artist Camilo, who serenaded the audience with an acoustic show.
We aim to continue nurturing and empowering up-and-coming creators on YouTube Shorts by investing in our Shorts Creator Community, where we educate and amplify diverse communities of creators through exclusive YouTube programming.
