Sábado Gigante
|
April 29, 2013

This Saturday, iconic Spanish-language television host Don Francisco interviewed Karina Hermosillo, the young openly lesbian contestant on Univision's "Nuestra Belleza Latina." She was interviewed on "Sábado Gigante," which is watched by millions every Saturday night, along with her mom and sister. Her girlfriend also made a surprise appearance. Hermosillo, who was knocked out of the contest in last last week's elimination round, did a terrific job telling her story. Congratulations to Don Francisco for doing the the interview and to Hermosillo who eloquently explained to viewers, both on this show and earlier, on "Nuestra Belleza Latina," the importance of visibility and the challenges of coming out.
