O Girl Media attended the 2017 Dominican Day Parade, celebrating the people and culture of the Dominican Republic. In its 35th year the parade was attended by thousands who marched along 6th Avenue to the sounds of Dominican music.

 

This years theme “Nuestra historia, al ritmo de guira tambora y acordeon is an ode to the richness and diversity of Dominican culture. It’s a fusion of African, European and Taino roots. Dominican Americans are the fifth largest Hispanic group in the United States.

 

Dominican hip hop artist Mozart La Para sent fans into a frenzy for selfies and handshakes. The ROC Nation artist rode the NY Daily News float, rapping rhymes and celebrating Dominican pride.

 

The parade was a beautiful display of pride as the Dominican community came together! Watch our story below!

All these allegations of sexual harassment should finally prove it's not just a few bad men, it's an entire culture that devalues women and makes it seem ok to "joke," try to touch, and be sexual w/ (mainly) women.

Make sure you check in on your people for the holidays. You may know someone who is spending the holiday away from family and would enjoy company.

It’s #Thanksgiving time which means being around the family child molestors. Most families have them. The cousins and uncles we aren’t safe with. Aunties too. Be careful with your kids!

  1. I love how New York celebrates so many cultures. I have friends from there. They always talk about the mix of cultures and backgrounds.

  2. I absolutely love the melting pot cities in our country. I grew up in the North East and spent summers and holidays with family in Brooklyn. I love seeing how our different Caribbean cultures are so unique and yet SO similar 🙂
