The series, from journalists/multimedia producers Carlos Anaya and Carlos Mayorga, highlights the emergence and multiple realities of LGBT Latinos.
The show enters the lives of a number of celebrities and leaders in entertainment, politics, religion, business and advocacy in four different U.S. cities – Los Angeles, New York, Tucson and Miami. Some of the interviews include:
Daniel Hernandez, former intern for Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Hernandez is credited with saving her life last year during a shooting at a Tucson supermarket.
Jane Velez-Mitchell, anchor for the CNN Headline News show “Jane Velez-Mitchell.”
Eduardo Xol, designer for seven seasons on the hit ABC show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”
Pedro Julio Serrano of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.
Richard Zaldivar of The Wall/Las Memorias Project.
Andres Duque, a gay Latino blogger nominated by GLAAD for his work.
Producer Carlos Mayorga explains, “Latino leaders who are making a difference and smashing stereotypes continue to emerge in our society. As producers, we chose individuals who are living the American Dream and setting the example of what all Latinos can become.”
The show will be available on the In the Life website on June 1. It will also air on 250 nationwide PBS stations, but air times will vary depending on your local listing. Check your local PBS affiliate to find out when you can catch, Orgullo Latino!
