Laverne Cox Says HBO Max’s Limited Series ‘Veneno’ Broke Her Heart

‘TRANSform Me’ star Laverne Cox updated her Instagram feed with a post dedicated to HBO Max’s fan-favorite series ‘Veneno,’ which premiered internationally in November.

Cox shared the official poster of the biographical limited series, based on transgender singer and TV personality Cristina Ortiz Rodríguez’s true story, and wrote that it “fully slayed” her.

“I laughed. I cried. It broke my heart. It reminded me of the power of chosen family, the power of our imaginations to create the world we need to survive.”

Cox, the first openly transgender actor to win a Daytime Emmy Award, added that the series reminded her to celebrate the history of transcestors, who led the way for LGBTQ+ people. The ‘Orange Is the New Black‘ star recommended her fans and followers to watch ‘Venona’ by saying:

 “Please everyone go and watch Veneno if you can. Celebrate trans lives.”

The series totally is based on the bio novel by Valeria Vegas, titled ‘¡Digo! Ni puta ni santa. Las memorias de La Veneno,’ which caused the famous LGBT icon to receive death threats. As known, a shorty after these threats, the singer was found semi-conscious in her house with a wound to the head and died on November 9 2016.

‘Veneno,’ starring Daniela Santiago, Isabel Torres, Lola Rodríguez, Desirée Rodríguez, Mariona Terés and Israel Elejalde, is now available to watch on HBO Max.

Here is Cox’s post.
