This week on Latino USA: what it means to be hurt. Journalist Jose Antonio Vargas tells host Maria Hinojosa about the pain he’s suffered, personally and professionally, for taking a stand for the undocumented. We hear stories of loneliness at “bailarina bars” in Queens, NYC. We learn how Latin@s deal with eating disorders. We learn about the little-known U-visa program, which helps victims of domestic violence. Spanish Harlem heals after a gas explosion displaces dozens. Latina moms discuss breastfeeding. We pay a visit to Laredo, Texas to feel the burn with jalapeño eating champs. And we get some words of wisdom about healing through art therapy.
