‘La Lupe’ is my passion project. I’ve done it as a one-woman show, but I’m raising money to turn it into a film. It’s a story of a Cuban singer who became the Queen of Latin Soul, the first woman on the N.Y. salsa scene.

I don’t have children, but I have 17 nieces and nephews, and they more than make up for anything that I can do. I have a stepdaughter, and I adore her to pieces, and I think about adoption. There are so many kids at different ages and stages that need families.

I’m much more ambitious than I’d like to admit.

When I first came out to L.A., Hollywood’s idea of a Latina was Mexican. It was almost like they had never seen or heard of an Afro-Latina before.
