Entertainment – Mexico Says They’ve Found A Recording Of Frida Kahlo’s Voice But I’m Mostly Excited About What She Says About Diego

Frida Kahlo is arguably the most recognizable artist of the 20th Century. The Mexican icon has become such a fixture within cultures across the globe that even your 4-year-old sobrina might know her. After all, Barbies, cosmetics, drinks, T-shirts, even sanitary pads have been made in her likeness. And yet, while we have countless paintings, pictures, and video of the painter who has captivated audiences the world over, her fans have been deprived of her voice.

That is to say, until today.

The National Sound Library of Mexico has found what they say is the first recording ever uncovered of Kahlo’s voice.

The audio clip was discovered on a sound file dating all the way back to 1955. Made by Álvaro Gálvez y Fuentes, the file comes from the pilot of a radio show known as “El Bachiller.” In it, Kahlo describes Diego Rivera for a profile the radio show was doing on her husband.

According to the press release from the National Sound Library of Mexico, the Kahlo file was recorded on open reel tape. The tape was sent to the library back in 2007 along with other files, all of which are part of a Television-Radio collection of audio. They’re on loan to the National Sound Library so they can be converted to digital.

According to Pável Granados, director of the National Sound Library, Kahlo’s voice is the institution’ most requested sound.

In the recording, we hear Kahlo’s melodious voice talking about her husband, Rivera. She’s reading from her essay “Portrait of Diego.” The words were written to accompany the 1949 work of the same name.

Though the radio program was recorded in 1955, the Kahlo file is thought to have been made in 1953 or 1954. In the radio program, it is noted that the voice’s owner was no longer alive. This further supports the claim that the voice belongs to Kahlo.

In light of the amazing discovery, the National Sound Library will work to authenticate the file.

The “El Bachiller” files are made up of 1,300 tapes that are still being catalogued and digitized. In the same way, more audio of the artista may yet to be discovered.

All in all, this is a huge discovery and Twitter was abuzz over the finding.

This Twitter user imagined what a throughly modern Frida would look like. Of course, she’s as stylish as ever.

Some expressed surprise at the sound of the artist’s voice.

Incidentally, we have also imagined what her voice would be like. Her voice is much like Frida was: vibrant, warm, and welcoming.

Some wondered how we can authenticate the voice.

This Twitter user suggested the National Sound Library contact journalist Elena Poniatowska or another person who knew Kahlo. It might be difficult with the passage of time but we imagine Frida’s voice is one you don’t easily forget.

Others were in awe of her loving words for Diego.

Of course, Kahlo and Rivera’s relationship was anything but conventional. Still, her voice holds nothing but love for him.

The total consensus on the Internet seems to be that this is Kahlo’s voice.

We can only hope that additional Kahlo audio is found so we can learn more about the artist in her own words.

It’s Pride Month and while the streets of cities across the country have been a parade of rainbows and love… there’s always That Guy.

During a month that is meant to be a celebration and honoring of all the people that make up the LGBTQ+ community, violence against the groups that make up the lovely rainbow has been unsettling. In fact, throughout the month, several trans people have been the victims of hate crimes during Pride month, and one such attack was caught on camera.

The most recent attack on a member of our community has been someone that has actually done quite a bit of work to elevate us.

“Pose” actor Indya Moore recently got into a physical dispute with a Trump supporter over opposing views.

For whatever reason, a man wearing a MAGA visor and carrying a banner that read “Re-Elect Trump in 2020: Keep America Great!” was standing outside the television studios in New York City where she films her show.

Moore takes the sign away from the man and someone is heard saying to call the police.

“Well, you guys aren’t fans of our show, and we don’t want you to be fans of our show,” Moore said to the man.

Thankfully a police officer was nearby and broke up the altercation before it got worse.

There was clearly pushing and shoving from both parties but an NYPD officer broke up the fight that included other people.

Moore hasn’t publically discussed the incident with the Trump supporter, but she remains vocal about advocating for the trans community.

Instagram/@indyamoore

On the same day as the fight, Moore tweeted, “Hey y’all those of you with varying political opinions who also watch pose… Thank you for loving black trans women, please also love us in real life and make sure the love you have for us reflects your politics because our lives/welfare are at Mercy to your politics/’opinions.'”

What the entire incident below.

Sponsored – How Every Soccer Mom Feels During Fútbol Season

Being a mom is special for so many reasons. There’s the love that you have for your child, for starters. And then there’s all the amazing things that come along with parenting – helping your kiddo as they learn to read and write, watching them make friends, and of course, the moment that they join their first sports team. In this case little league soccer

Despite the craziness of life and balancing of hectic schedules, a fútbol mom always finds that magical, unexpected energy when it’s time to cheer on their baby at a soccer match.

Here’s how every soccer mom feels during fútbol season (aka the craziest sport season).

1. You’re besties with all the other soccer moms.

Let’s be real: one of the best parts about being a soccer mom is all the chisme. Latina moms love to be social, so it’s no surprise that you love soccer season. You keep up with all the gossip with the other moms, while everyone cheers on their kids.

2. There’s always a fear of running out of snacks.

There is nothing scarier than a bunch of ravenous, hungry little soccer players, and luckily fútbol mamás always turn out when it comes to snack duty. Is there a little competition to be the mom with the best snacks? Of course there is. This is little league soccer, people – it’s serious.

3. You have to be the mom who cheers the loudest.

If you don’t lose your voice from cheering, were you ever really there? It doesn’t matter how long, busy, stressful the week leading up to the game was or how crazy work and life got – soccer moms always have that surge of unexpected energy when it comes to a fútbol game.  

4. It’s better to pretend you saw your kid make a goal than say the truth: you were scrolling through Instagram.

It’s impossible to catch every single goal that a kid makes, give yourself a break. Sometimes it’s just better to pretend to have seen the goal than to confess that you missed it because of Instagram. Moms are only human, ok!

5. You know when it’s time to bust out the custom-made soccer jerseys.

Those fabulous fútbol jerseys you made that say, “Go team go!” on them. Your kids might be mortified by these, but totally worth an eye roll from them.

6. Rain or shine, you’re there. With ponchos and umbrellas for everyone!

Being prepared – and not just with snacks and cheers. You’re prepared for every single situation, including bad weather. The other moms are grateful when you start handing out the extra rain ponchos and umbrellas. Your over-prepared abuela would be proud.

7. You’re ready to step in as the coach at a moment’s notice.

You’re not just a fan of your kid, you’re also a huge fan of fútbol itself! You know the game better than anyone, and you’re ready to step in as a substitute coach whenever they might need you. Which, of course, is rarely ever, but a soccer mom can dream, can’t she?

There’s something so fun about being a soccer mom. Life can be so busy and stressful, but when that unexpected energy hits you the second you pull up to the fútbol field, there’s simply nothing better.
