LATV’s ‘Glitterbomb’ is TV’s first gay Latinx talk show

Glitterbomb” has made history as the first, queer Latinx TV talk show with a gay Latino cast.

The show, which debuted last month, airs Thursdays on LATV at 7 p.m. P.S.T. and will run until Dec. 6.

“The LGBTQ Latino community has, for too long, been underserved,” Luca Bentivoglio, LATV’s chief operating office and head of programming said in a statement. “LATV is proud to foster an environment of inclusivity, and we are thrilled to be a pioneer in LGBTQ Latino programming by airing the first-ever talk show with an entirely gay Latino cast.”

“Glitterbomb” is co-hosted by a trio of personalities: Entertainment Weekly senior editor Patrick Gomez, actor Enrique Sapene, and iHeartRadio personality Alexander Rodriguez.

On the show, which is targeted to an English speaking audience, the three hosts discuss pop-culture news and trends and interview celebrity guests, including telenovela superstar Scarlet Ortiz, “Claws” actress Jenn Lyon, Justina Machado from “One Day at a Time,” Master Chef Latino” winner Sindy Lazo, and Camila Banus (“Days of Our Lives”).
