Some of my favorite posts (and reader favorites) on this blog have been about multicultural identity. My Latino Husband is White and “Not Really White”: Thoughts on the New Pope were some of my own reflections about our family’s “white Latino” identity. Alyssa wrote a popular guest post The Not-So-Tragic Mulatto: What Growing Up Biracial Taught Me.
In 2013, I started collecting reader stories about their cultural identity. To see posts in this series, click here.
Do you have a story to tell about multicultural identity?
Maybe you grew up in a culture different than your own. Maybe you or your parents immigrated to a new country. Perhaps your culture is different than your parents’. Or maybe your parents are from different races or cultures.
I am interested in stories of all kinds from those who have reflected on their multicultural identity. Would you consider sharing your story on A Life with Subtitles?
I'm always interested in new additions to this guest post series.

Over the last several years, I have heard so many powerful and important stories from people who have multicultural experiences to share. I look forward to hearing yours as well!
