Deanna is a lifelong resident of Kansas City, who some may recognize as the star of Queer Eye’s Season 4, Episode 6. She is the founder of the Latino Arts Foundation, a nonprofit organization created to bring forth the fiercely authentic voice of underrepresented artists through their diverse stories, cultures and beliefs. Latino Arts Foundation fosters artistic passion and honors cultural identities while healing historic inequities.
The Midwest Chicana Brand is another of Deanna’s passion projects. The online platform is home to her online retail store with custom handmade goods and the Midwest Chicana Podcast. This brand builds unity within Latinx communities and creates a platform for, and of, the people to further the exclamation of their voice.
