Confession time. We’ve been Sophie Suarez superfans ever since that legendary opening sequence in the very first episode of The L Word: Generation Q (if you know, you know). So we couldn’t be more thrilled to have trailblazing actor Rosanny Zayas on the cover of our October issue. In an open-hearted interview with DIVA editor Roxy Bourdillon, Rosanny gets candid about the life-changing power of seeing yourself onscreen, how sex scenes helped her fall in love with her body and what’s next for her character after that jaw-dropping season one finale. Elsewhere in our Black History Month issue, we’re centring and celebrating the voices of awesome queer people of colour.
