OITNB’s Selenis Leyva discusses the “heartache” and “honesty” she and her transgender sister, Marisol, experienced writing their new book, My Sister: How One Siblings Transition Changed Us Both, and the taboo nature of the process that surrounds many Latino families.
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.
