The Q Agenda is the only LGBTQ Latinx talk show with queer Latinx hosts

Q marks the spot for Enrique Sapene, one of four hosts of “The Q Agenda,” the only queer Latinx talk show with LGBTQ Latinx hosts.

The show’s fourth season will debut at 9 p.m. PST Thursday on LATV.

“The show is so special because it’s made for the LGBTQ+ Latinx community by members of the LGBTQ+ community in front of and behind the camera,” said Sapene, the show’s creator and one of the executive producers. “LATV has created a safe space for our community and allies to have an honest conversation like nobody else has ever done with the Latino community.”

Each episode of “The Q Agenda” will feature  activists, celebrities, or influencers and discussions about issues affecting the LGBTQ community.

Comedian Lianna Carrera, actress and transgender activist Juliana Joel, and makeup artist Victor Ramos are the show’s three other hosts.

Model-actor-singer Laith Ashley will be a guest on Thursday’s show. Also, representatives from the AIDS Healthcare Foundation will talk about the group’s outreach efforts through their Flux and Loud programs that outreach to the transgender and Latino communities.

Other topics this season will include a discussion about Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her legacy and an interview with Dr. James Simmons, a gay doctor and a person of color, who will talk about how COVID-19 has affected the LGBTQ and Latino communities.

“The Q Agenda” evolved from the show “Glitterbomb,” which debuted on LATV in October 2018. The show made history as the first, LGBTQ Latinx TV talk show with a gay Latino cast.

“Glitterbomb” was co-hosted by a trio of personalities (Entertainment Weekly senior editor Patrick Gomez, iHeartRadio personality Alexander Rodriguez, and Sapene) discussing pop culture news and trends and interviewing celebrity guests.

But in September 2019, Gomez and Rodriguez were replaced with  three news hosts to increase the panel’s LGBTQ diversity. Sapene remained as a host.

The show’s name was changed to “The Q Agenda.”
