What are your pronouns?
Anna and Michelle here from Sephora Prism, nice to meet you! Sephora Prism is a group of Sephora employees dedicated to creating a culture of belonging to celebrate the diversity of our LGBTQIA+ community at Sephora and with our clients. We’ll be posting about topics that are important to us and the LGBTQIA+ community, starting with pronouns! You know… They, Xe, Ze, He, She…
As many of you already know, you can’t always know someone’s pronouns just by looking at them. Some may take it for granted that they do not have to worry about which pronoun someone is going to use based on how they perceive your gender. The simple solution is to ask and consistently use someone’s correct pronouns to show respect for their gender identity. For example, Michelle is on the left and prefers the pronouns They/Them. My name is Anna (I’m on the right, hi!) and my pronouns are They/Them or She/Her.
Mistakes and misgendering happens, but as with all things, practice makes perfect!

Re: What are your pronouns?
There is a new one called Latinex, it is a gender neutral term of Latina Latino. I live in South Florida USA and I first heard about this on public radio. There is a Facebook page about it. It's progressive because Spanish Espanol and Latin and Central America as romantic language tends to emphasize masculine and feminine words, especially the endings. Latinex means authentic, inclusive and creative. They are trying to have it become more common, as a unifying modern word. We can say "I am Latinex" in lieu of "Soy Latina" or "Soy un Latino".
I hope this helps some of us while channeling our inner Selena bold red lip and cat eye!
