Orange Is the New Black star Selenis Levya co-authors a memoir with her trans sister

Many know Selenis Leyva from Orange Is the New Black where she plays inmate Gloria Mendoza. Fewer know that she and her sister, Marizol, co-authored a powerful and informative memoir released a couple of weeks into the Covid-19 lockdown. As it walks us through their coming-of-age and adult lives right up to the present, this joint memoir about self-actualisation explores what is it to navigate the world as an Afro-Latinx trans woman of modest means.
