Mira TV premieres Spanish-language LGBTQ talk show this weekend



South Florida's LGBTQ personalities are launching a Spanish-language talk show on Mira TV called "Sobre todos los Géneros," which in English means "About All Genders." 

The Miami Herald reports the show will premiere this Sunday at 8 p.m. and is going to focus on issues the queer community encounters, such as inequality and prejudice. The program's creators are Susanna Taddei, a spokesperson for Equality Florida, and her wife, Ibetti Pérez Larralde, a radio and TV producer. 

"Everybody has a family member or a neighbor or a co-worker who is gay or transgender," says Alejandro Condis, who will be on the show, according to the Herald. "We are everywhere. This program can help people understand those who are around them. This is a program about the LGBT community but not just for the LGBT community. It’s for everybody."

The show is believed to be the first of its kind in the U.S. Latino media market. While not an anomaly, featuring LGBTQ people on Latino TV stations is still rare, though queer characters have made increased appearances in telenovelas, and last month a Brazilian telenovela made history when it aired the first gay sex scene on television in its country. Still, it was only two years ago that Televisa, a Mexican mass media company, censured a gay kiss from a telenovela. 

The Herald reports Mira TV is available on Comcast, DirecTV, AT&T Uverse and Atlantic Broadband. To learn more about the show, click here
