 Guadalupe Rosales created the instagram page @veteranas_and_rucas. The page is "dedicated to women raised in SoCal and the preservation of our culture". Anyone from the LA area with photos from the 70s-90s can submit their photos to her via mail or DM. Her passion for preserving and sharing latinx youth culture soon became widely recognized as more than an instagram page but a historical archive by places like the UCLA Chicano Studies Program and Los Angeles Museum of Art. Guadalupe sees her work as a way to fight against gentrification and it's erasure of chicanx history in LA. She also sees is at a way to show the diversity of subcultures of Chicanx and Latinx youth that is usually watered down to gang affiliation. This photo exhibit is meant to relish in the beauty that is Chicanx and Latinx youth culture, fashion, and more.
