New HBO Max series ‘Veneno’ revisits Spanish icon’s life

Veneno, a new Spanish-language show on HBO Max, is a biopic of Cristina Ortiz, a transgender woman who lived a remarkable life. Based as a sex worker in Madrid, a 1996 TV interview catapulted her to stardom, and she later acquired fame as an actress, model and activist.
 
Ever since its original air date in Spain, the show has been making waves for its humane and empathetic portrayal of the transgender community. Thanks to HBO Max, audiences outside Spain can also watch the show and understand the challenges Ortiz trumped in order to become one of the most visible figures in Spanish pop culture.
 
The show is currently streaming on HBO Max.
