About Cristina

Cristina Escobar (sometimes also Andrade) is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of LatinaMedia.Co, a digital publication uplifting Latina and gender non-conforming Latinx perspectives in media. She came to that work with more than a decade of experience working on feminist causes.

Today she is a regular contributor to POPSUGAR and Roger Ebert with bylines in outlets like the A.V. Club, Glamour, NPR, Refinery29, Remezcla, TODAY, and Vulture. Her credentials also include being a TEDx speaker, a member of the Critics Choice Association and the Latino Entertainment Journalists Association and a Rotten-Tomatoes-approved critic.

When she’s not opining on the state of Latinx representation in print, on the radio, or at events, she’s loving life in Santa Fe, NM with her spouse, two kids, and rescue dog.
