NEW YORK, NY – October 10, 2014 – (HISPANICIZE WIRE) – Latin heartthrob and rising star, William Levy graces the October cover of LatinTRENDS magazine ( In this exclusive interview, Levy confesses his obsessions, talks about starring in “Addicted,” the steamy film by Zane, and accepting the challenge of playing such a psychologically complex character. The star describes his upbringing in Cuba, and talks about his upcoming film, “The Veil,” and the possibility of developing his own signature cologne.

This month’s issue brings another exclusive interview with emerging talent on Netflix’s hit series, “Orange is the New Black’s” Selenis Levya. Levya talks about the women she grew up with as the source of inspiration for her character and dishes on her new role in the up-coming film, “St. Vincent,” starring alongside hilarious actors, Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy.

A must read interview, an up-close with transgender model, and a former contestant on “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Carmen Carerra. In this issue of LatinTRENDS, Carrera tells all—her family, her career, her love life, her transition and her mission are all on the table. The model gained media attention early this year when she and Laverne Cox, who also stars in “Orange is the New Black,” set television journalist Katie Couric straight concerning Couric’s invasive line of questioning.

Juan Guillen, publisher of LatinTRENDS, takes a look at defining “The Hood,” known to many Latinos as “Mi Barrio” on this month’s publisher’s column: “The Honor of the Struggle.” These ethnic enclaves have drama, flavor, pain and joy, yet its people and its communities find ways to thrive within the struggle. “And there is a certain honor to this struggle,” says Guillen.

This October issue honors El Rey de la Radio, Polito Vega, the 76-year-old radio legend that has played an integral part in the Latin music scene for over 55 years. Taking a concerned look at the prevalence of violent behavior among football players; investigating the lack of Latinos characters in comic books; and revealing the secrets of a New York City doorman—a juicy interview not to be missed.

This month, the multimedia company presents a new section called “Live it” presented by healthfirst. “Live it” is packed with health and wellness content that speaks to the audience in an entertaining and easy to comprehend way. And who is the woman who makes working out sexy? Janet Jones of the Vixen Workout. Our interview with Ms. Jones will show you why Miami’s latest fitness obsession is very caliente.

Last but not least, the October issue also offers a look at tech companies to watch and ways to make money the fast and legal way. And, for those looking to relax, LatinTRENDS presents “Vacation Yogi Style,” illuminating Mexico’s secret yoga getaways.
