HBO Max released the trailer of its new series entitled La Veneno , which tells the story of Cristina Ortiz, a singer, actress and sex worker in Spain that became known in the country as La Veneno.
She was one of the first Spanish transsexuals and became well known in the media in the 1990s. Then she ended up disappearing from public life for a while, then returning to make some TV appearances. The internet also helped the younger generations to get to know Cristina.
Veneno will accompany a young journalist who finds out and ends up being attracted to La Veneno. The series is based on the book Not A Whore, Not A Saint: The Memories of La Veneno , by author Valeria Vegas.
