DJ Oscar Nñ is one of Alt.Latino's favorite guest DJs: We love the music he spins so much that we invite him to hang out at every opportunity. We're right in the middle of LGBT Pride Month, so we invited Nñ to assemble a mixtape of songs; in addition to being a fantastic DJ, he's extremely active in supporting the LGBT community. One of Nñ's projects is a monthly party called Papi Juice, which provides a safe space for LGBT people of color — everyone is invited — to dance, meet and have fun.

So come join us for fun, thoughtful, joyous music and conversation about LGBT Pride Month. And, as always, tell us which songs you'd add to the mix in the comments.
