#1638 - You Are Cordially Invited to Hailey's Quinceañera

Email a Friend
Latino USA takes a deep dive into one of the most iconic Latinx traditions: La Quinceañera. We follow the journey of one quinceañera Hailey Alexis from Whittier, California as she plans for the big day. We meet the self-proclaimed "quince lord" - a videographer, family friends who are debating whether they will have one for their daughter, and attend one of the biggest Quince Expos on the East Coast. And throughout the process we explore how the quinceañera is seen as a status symbol, a form of female empowerment, a statement about Latinx identity and also just a really fun party.
