LATV Networks will premiere season 3 of their weekly Latinx LGBTQ+ talk show The Q Agenda Thursday, June 4th at 8:30pm EST / 9pm PST, making Pride month that much more festive come quarantine or high water. Read the announcement press release here. The series is hosted by actress and trans activist Juliana Joel, comedian Lianna Carrera, celebrity makeup artist and entrepreneur Victor Ramos and actor, host and reality TV personality Enrique Sapene, who also serves as producer alongside Aura Quiroz. Produced at LATV Studios, The Q Agenda features candid conversations about issues affecting the community and special guest interviews with artists, leaders and celebrities relevant to the Latinx LGBTQ+ experience.
Despite the postponement, cancellation, or digitization of in-person Pride events from coast to coast, it’s as important as ever that LGBTQ+ people from the Latinx community are celebrated in the media. The third season of The Q Agenda will premiere during LATV’s Pride month campaign, #LATVProud along with other Pride-themed custom content across all of LATV’s distribution properties including their editorial section on LATV.com, Google News, #LATVProud social media campaigns and other custom series like “My Queer Story” on LATV’s OTT and streaming properties.
The exact format of the show and logistics for The Q Agenda tapings have yet to be solidified by LATV. “We’re listening to health officials and science when it comes to producing content in a way that puts the health of our team and community first. Considering the disproportionate toll the coronavirus has taken on our Latinx community, it’s important for us to make sure we have a platform this Pride month to support and elevate the Latino voices giving us hope, inspiring and supporting us,” said Andres Palencia, Co-Executive Director of LATV Networks.
The Q Agenda promises a new slate of guests from all shades of the rainbow during season 3, having already featured prominent figures from the LGBTQ+ community last season (as seen in a piece by the folks at LA Blade) such as original Queer Eye cast member Jai Rodriguez, thought leader Roman Navarette, Queen Victoria Ortega from FLUX, and trans rights activist and journalist Ashlee Marie Preston. In addition to LGBTQ+ guests and lively banter, season 3 will continue to be a forum for discussion about intersectional issues in the community including identity, immigration, HIV status, and equity. “During a time in which we have to be apart in order to protect each other, it comforts me to know we’ll be able to connect with our community through The Q Agenda during Pride month. We are a resilient community, and we will get through this pandemic by being “together apart” and focusing on hope and love over fear,” said co-host and creator Enrique Sapene.
Season 3 will focus on issues relevant to the Latinx LGBTQ+ experience and will feature special guests such as Jonny Beauchamp, Rafael de la Fuente, Omar Shariff Jr., Miguel Sirgado and Monica Monica Trasandes among others. Including Zoom-style interview and social distancing, episodes during pride month 2020.
