Bam!

Alexis Mateo, Bianca Del Rio, Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, Crystal Methyd, and April Carrión are embracing the skin they're in.

The RuPaul's Drag Race alum stun in a new video where they dissect the importance of Hispanic Heritage Month and LGBTQ+ History Month.

"We're doing a photoshoot to celebrate our Latin heritage. We're all gathered together to discuss our Hispanic history all together," Bianca Del Rio says.

"This is a combination that could be a disaster, but it's actually working because we're that fierce," Alexis Mateo adds.

Visibility is so important right now for all minorities, so the queens are using their platforms to push for more queer and Hispanic representation in the media.

"Even more than ever, I feel like I've embraced my roots. I feel that's where my power is. It inspires me to nurture my Puerto Rican queer culture," April Carrión says.

"Growing up, I actually wanted to see somebody like me on TV. Growing up in Puerto Rico was very lonely. Being on TV is a chance to be visible and help that little boy or little girl somewhere to give them a little hope," Alexis Mateo shares.
