It’s just a few days before Thanksgiving! WOO HOO!

Although Halloween is actually my favorite holiday and Christmas is a close second, there is something truly special about Thanksgiving for me. You see, my family has a really fun and sweet tradition where our meal always consists of a hodge-podge of American, Russian and Cuban recipes. It’s always a mix and it’s always a good time.

This year I was lucky enough to be asked to contribute one of my family’s recipes with one of my FAVORITE food sites, The Kitchn. They did a very special package of immigrants sharing their stories through Thanksgiving stuffing… and of course I had to contribute.

Check out my recipe and story: Cuban Meaty Potato Stuffing on The Kitchn today. And don’t forget to read all Four Stories of the New World, Told in Stuffing too!

How to deal with the difficulty of a family member who voted for Trump

There’s no two ways about it: This election has been divisive.

To be honest, it’s been particularly difficult for me. I previously wrote about how proud I was to cast my vote as a bisexual Latina immigrant, three words that are important to me and my identity.

These words mean that I am pro-immigration reform, that I fight for LGBT rights and that I believe in things like the #BlackLivesMatter movement. I also believe in a woman’s right to choose, universal healthcare, in the freedom of the press and religion and that Muslims are generally good people. Oh yes, and that taxes are a good thing (you know, because they provide the money for the government to run things like the military, schools, fix roads and so much more).

But half the country doesn’t agree with me. Or at least, half of the country chose to vote for a man who is a clear racist, sexist, homophobe, Islamaphobe, xenophobe, etc. He’s said horrible things about Mexicans, the disabled and honestly more people than I care to count at this point. And, worst of all (or close to it), he bragged about sexually assaulting women in the now-infamous “grab them by the pussy” comment.

AND YET PEOPLE VOTED FOR HIM!

I’ll never understand that. And I’ll especially never understand people I know that voted for him. Which is why I wrote about it in my latest piece for Dose, a really difficult piece that I still stand by 100%. This is how I feel, and I truly fear for this country’s future.

Today I voted because I’m a bisexual Latina immigrant and it’s important

Today is Election Day!

If you don’t know or understand the importance of the 2016 election, then it’s very possible that you have been lying under a rock for the past year and a half. And that’s totally NOT okay. So this is my very last and final plea with you: GO OUT AND VOTE!

And yes, I am totally biased about who you should vote for. But, you know, I kind of have to be… One candidate is the most qualified person for the office of the presidency of the United States of America and the other person is an orange popsicle filled with hate. As someone who self-identifies as a bisexual Latina immigrant (what else would you call me anyway?), there is only ONE message that I care about and that is a message of hope, tolerance and understanding.

And, hey, look! I even wrote about it. Check out I’m a Bisexual Latina Immigrant. I Can’t Wait to Vote on Dose.com now!
