Two words. Richard Blanco. Remember this name because it is going down in the history books! For the first time in our U.S. history, a Latino will be speaking at the President’s inauguration ceremony. But wait, there is more! Richard Blanco, is not only Latino, he is also gay. So for the first time ever in our nation, a gay and Latino poet has been given the honor of speaking at the White House. Republican or Democrat, this is a celebration for all. This moment encapsulates our nation’s move toward truly practicing diversity and inclusion. How you may ask? By allowing inauguration speakers to represent often underrepresented groups in our country.
