This past month, Kyra got to sit down with legendary creator, creative, artist, director, producer (and the list goes on because she is literally a superhero) – Kayden Phoenix!
Kayden is the creator of the first Latina superhero team in comic book history, “A La Brava,” which showcases a team of fierce women, who all tell a story of fighting against female injustices.
Kayden is also the founder of Chicana Directors Initiative, a non profit for Latina directors in the film industry, which aims to immerse members into sustainable careers in the entertainment industry with fair representation and equal pay.
We told you she’s a superhero and we’re not wrong.
Kayden is a third generation Chicana from East L.A., who puts her direct childhood influences of her mother and grandmother into her art. Whether it’s the native dance of folkrico or the influence of Jalisco in her life, you can see the love she has for her native roots in every aspect of her life.
We are huge fans of everything Kayden does and are so grateful we got to chat with her about her art!
