Latin heartthrob from “Single Moms Club” and rising Hollywood star, William Levy graces the October cover of LatinTRENDS magazine. In the interview, Levy talks about starring in the steamy “Addicted” movie by Zane, and accepting the challenge of playing such a psychologically complex character. Levy also confesses his obsessions, describes his upbringing in Cuba, talks about his upcoming film, “The Veil,” and the possibility of developing his own signature cologne.
This month also features an interview with emerging talent on Netflix’s hit series, “Orange is the New Black’s” Selenis Levya. Levya talks about using the collection of women she grew up with in the Bronx as the source of inspiration for her character, Puerto Rican chef, Gloria Mendoza. Levya also dishes on her new role in the up-coming film, “St. Vincent,” starring alongside hilarious actors, Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy.
Also in this issue, an up-close with transgender model, and a former contestant on “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Carmen Carerra. She gained media attention early this year when she and Laverne Cox, who also stars in “Orange is the New Black,” set television journalist Katie Couric straight concerning Couric’s invasive line of questioning. In this issue of LatinTRENDS, Carrera tells all — her family, her career, her love life, her transition and her mission are all on the table.
“The Honor of the Struggle” is the title of this month’s publisher’s column. Juan Guillen takes a look at defining “The Hood,” known to many Latinos as “Mi Barrio.” These ethic enclaves have drama, flavor, pain and joy, yet its people and its communities find ways to thrive within the struggle. “And there is a certain honor to this struggle,” says Guillen.
The October issue includes even more entertainment, honoring El Rey de la Radio, Polito Vega, the 76-year-old radio legend that has played an integral part in the Latin music scene for over 55 years. Taking a concerned look at the prevalence of violent behavior among football players; investigating the lack of Latinos characters in comic books; and revealing the secrets of a New York City doorman—a juicy interview not to be missed.
LatinTRENDS also shows readers what’s “in” at the gym—how to look good while getting sweaty. And presented by Healthfirst is the new “Live it” section, with health and wellness topics as entertaining content that are part of “pop culture.” And who is the woman who makes working out sexy? Janet Jones of the Vixen Workout. Our interview with Ms. Jones will show you why Miami’s latest fitness obsession is very caliente.
For those looking to relax, LatinTRENDS also presents “Vacation Yogi Style,” illuminating Mexico’s secret yoga getaways.
Last but not least, the October issue also offers a look at tech companies to watch and ways to make money the fast and legal way.
