We Know What The Cast Of OITNB Looks Like Out Of Prison Uniforms, Here Are All The Badass Things They’re Doing

Now that we’ve binged and cried our eyes out now that “Orange Is The New Black” has officially come to an end, let’s take a moment to reflect on life outside of Litchfield. Sure, the Latinas have given us a season to admire and love, but what are all of them doing when not behind bars?

Diane Guerrero, a.k.a. Maritza Ramos

When she isn’t using pizza to win an election, Diane Guerrero is offering her voice and story to fight for comprehensive immigration reform. The Colombian-American actor has shared very personal and heartbreaking details of the day her own family got deported when she was just 14 years old. Since rising to fame, thanks to her role as Maritza, Guerrero has written a book about her immigration story and has spent time trying to work with politicians to get some form of immigration reform passed.

Jessica Pimentel, a.k.a. Maria Ruiz

When she isn’t playing the tormented mother who was separated from her children, Jessica Pimentel is rocking out. Seriously! Pimentel is the lead singer of not one but TWO heavy metal bands. Now, heavy metal was not always the path she thought she would take. The woman behind Maria Ruiz trained as a classical violinist, touring all over Japan and the U.S. playing her music. But, tbh, girl slays on the stage as she leads the bands into hella awesome concerts.

Elizabeth Rodriguez, a.k.a. Aleida Diaz

Elizabeth Rodriguez has captured our attention as the not-so-kind mother trying to make amends on “OITNB,” but when she isn’t playing Aleida Diaz, Rodriguez is all over the stage. With a background in theatre (and a Tony nomination), she continues to own the stage with different shows since becoming a member of the “OITNB” familia.

Laura Gómez, a.k.a. Blanca Flores

Laura Gómez might look familiar. After all, as as Blanca Flores, she did tell all those white Litchfield inmates that Latinos are in fact taking over the country. ? When she isn’t in prison, Gómez is trying to initiate a change in culture in her home country and in all of Latin America. The Dominican-born actor is using her voice and position in the media to fight alongside the Latin American LGBTQ community for acceptance, rights and protections. While proud of being Dominican, Gómez wants her country to become a safer and more welcoming place for LGBTQ Dominicans.

Selenis Leyva, a.k.a. Gloria Mendoza

Selenis Leyva is the epitome of a philanthropist. When she isn’t running the kitchen as Gloria Mendoza, she is tackling some of society’s most talked about issues. Not only is she an ambassador for Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research, but she has taken to the talk shows to talk about body positivity for women. During one interview, she expressed her concern that teenagers, like her daughter, are being taught that their curvy bodies aren’t perfect. As a Latina, Leyva says that you need to own your curves because there are people who wish, and would pay, to have those same curves.

Jackie Cruz, a.k.a. Marisol “Flaca” Gonzales

Sure, we have all seen Jackie Cruz and her tribute to the one and only Selena, but Flaca has been at this game for a minute. Before she was the Flaca of Flaritza (Flaca + Maritza), Cruz was trying to pursue a career in singing. And she ain’t bad, as you can see in this music video from 2010. Now, all we need to know is when she’ll be dropping her very own full-length solo album. You might also remember her days on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”

Dascha Polanco, a.k.a. Dayanara “Daya” Diaz

Credit: @sheisdash / Instagram

Dascha Polanco made our hearts stop as the pregnant inmate to a correction officer’s baby (WHY BENNETT?! WHY?). But when she isn’t Daya, Polanco is breaking barriers and using her voice for some good. Photoed above is Polanco when she joined the NFL’s Women’s Apparel push last year. Did we mention that she was the only Latina in the initiative? Way to represent. When she isn’t bringing more Latina representation to sports, she’s using her voice to further abortion rights. She joined the Center for Reproductive Rights as a celebrity voice, reading the stories of those who are brave enough to share their abortion stories.

Ricky Martin Opens Up On Being A Queer Latino And Talks New Music In Powerful New Interview

Ricky Martin Opens Up On Being A Queer Latino And Talks New Music In Powerful New Interview

Mike Windler / Getty Images

Ricky Martin has long been an international superstar – even long before ‘Livin’ La Vida Loca’ took over virtually every airway in the world. But it’s hard to deny that with that song, the Puerto Rican singer entered the global mainstream and ever since he’s been a pop icon.

From being one of the first major pop stars to publicly come out as gay, to acting in popular TV series, and getting married and becoming a father of four, Ricky Martin has always been a very busy man.

And despite a global pandemic that has forced all of us to stay at home and find a ‘new normal,’ Martin has forged a path forward. He recently sat down for an interview with Billboard to discuss everything from new music, the global Coronavirus pandemic, and his identity as an out and proud gay Latino.

Considering we’re all still living amid a global pandemic, the Billboard interview started on this very relevant topic.

Billboard points out that Martin and his family live in a very big and beautiful house in Beverly Hills, which likely makes staying at home a bit easier compared to the rest of us. However, Martin points out that he has a very loud home – with four kids and his mom all living under one roof. But he admits, “…I am very lucky. I am in a comfortable home where my kids can play.”

Ricky Martin is also working on new music. He released Pausa in May, and now as he works on new music the world is a very different place. He told Billboard: “I started working on my music maybe nine months ago. In my mind, the album was going to be called Movimiento, which means movement. But with all this [pandemic], it just told me… “The way it was, was not working. Let’s do it differently.” I have music with rhythm, but I was not going to tell people to move! So I named it Pausa.”

He also speaks about his close relationship with fellow Puerto Rican, El Conejo Malo.

Shortly after Billboard released its history-making cover with Bad Bunny on the the cover, Martin described San Benito as a “Latin queer icon.” Many people – of all backgrounds – took issue with that. But Ricky Martin tells Billboard that “allies are so important. Without them, our fight for equality is impossible. It really tickles me to see Bad Bunny as a gay icon — just like Cher could be. Why not?”

The Puerto Rican singer shared what his coming out experience was like and reveals he never tires of sharing it.

In the interview, Martin is very open about his coming out as gay. The singer came out as gay in 2010, married husband Jwan Yosef in 2017, and together the couple is raising four children.

Rolling Stone asked Martin, 48, what it was like to remain closeted during “the most public, exposed period” of his life.

“I had moments of extreme positivity, and not so positive [moments],” Martin answered. “Life was a bit on steroids in those days. Everything was really intense, but I could take it! I come from a school of military discipline when it comes to training for music, dance, and acting. I started when I was 12. So for me, it was about not being ready to open [up]. When you open an egg from the outside, what comes out is death. But when the egg opens from the inside, what comes out is life. It’s something that needs to come from within. Every time someone forces someone to come out, what you’re doing is you’re destroying the natural flow of the self-discovery.”

When asked what motivated him to come out publicly, Martin said that a kid somewhere in America needs to see positive headlines about coming out.

“Today I woke up to this beautiful headline that I know someone out there is in need of. The headline was something like, ‘I came out. And ever since I’ve been the happiest.’ Something like that, something… My heart is beating faster because I know today a kid somewhere in America woke up needing to hear those words. A lot of people say they get tired of talking about the same thing. Why would I? Are you kidding me? For so many years I had to keep it inside. And then the effect of someone… What people are getting from it in their healing process?”

Billboard also asked Martin his feelings on how the media is profiting and accepting Puerto Rican and Latinx culture.

When asked if he feels that the American media has gotten better or more open to understanding Puerto Rican culture, Martin responded: “We certainly have a long way to go, but the important thing is that we see that there’s an audience that is interested. And it’s up to us to bring [the] education.”

And he’s absolutely right. This year has seen several Latino artists rise to the top of all sorts of charts. Bad Bunny and J Balvin are among the most streamed artists globally and Bad Bunny is one of the most streamed artists on YouTube as well.

Meanwhile, Maluma and Jennifer Lopez are working on a film that will be out early next year. The Emmy’s, VMAs, and other award shows finally had decent representation of artists of color – particularly among the Latinx community.
