When I heard that actors Julian Gil and Marjorie de Sousa had chosen us to share the news that they were getting married and expecting a baby with our more than 7 million monthly readers and users, I realized that their trust was the result of the kinds of relationships we've been cultivating for two decades now.

We follow the ethical and journalistic parameters of the press in the U.S. —as well as Time Inc.'s, our parent company— of not paying for exclusive interviews. The credibility and trust we've enjoyed as a brand from both the public and celebrities over the years speak for themselves.

Being number one in the U.S. Hispanic market is a source of pride, the result of years of work and, at the same time, a challenge. We're proud that other publications want to copy our franchises (“50 Most Beautiful,” for example) or want to reproduce our style — down the font we use to print the magazine. But the public will always know who the original is, who delivers the exclusives, who respects celebrities and who speaks to them in a one-on-one dialogue as a unifying force of an ever-growing culture in the U.S.

We're part of a tireless community that has worked extremely hard to build itself up. We reach out to women, young people, those who speak Spanish or are bilingual as no other brand does or can. We're inspirational but not exclusive; we don't pretend to be a luxury brand, we reach out to all Latinos. Do we include luxury items in our coverage? Sure, but we give our readers and users real-life options for everything from dressing to behaving on the job or at a family function.

Our content is original and created entirely in and for the U.S. Hispanic market. We don't pretend to be something we're not. People en Español is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year with its own voice and the loyalty of an ever-growing community.

Thank you for being a part of our family,

Armando
