Toxic machismo carries a heavy impact on both men and women within the Latino community, and vulnerability is often suppressed as a side effect. Orange Is the New Black’s Dascha Polanco welcomes Julio Macias (On My Block) and JJ Soria (Gentefied) to discuss the tough time we often have letting our guard down and how we can begin to dismantle the notion that we can’t.
This conversation derives from the podcast, Brown Love, in partnership with Futuro Media and Netflix’s Con Todo. Brown Love is a six-episode podcast celebrating the multi-faceted US Latinx experience. Each week, host Dascha Polanco (Orange Is the New Black, Russian Doll and When They See Us) talks to Latinxs in Hollywood who are making space for communities to see themselves, tackling topics like machismo, self-care, comedy and the first-generation experience.It’s available everywhere you get your podcasts.
