"Purple Eyes" by Josh Inocéncio

"Purple Eyes" is an ancestral autobiography where Inocéncio investigates his identity as a gay Chicano amid the lineage of machismo men in his family. Many generations of Inocéncios originated in Michoacán, a southern Mexican state with strong P’urhépecha connections, before they emigrated to the United States. And as his cousin Chuy says, “those Michoacán men, tu sabes, are on another level of machismo.” The title comes from his dad’s notorious purple sunglasses he wore when Inocéncio was kid, a remnant of his flashier clothing when he worked as an undercover cop in gay night clubs. The “purple eyes” also imply the ability of these men to queer the world around them despite their hyper-masculine tendencies.

She has subsequently appeared on numerous television series and is best known for her roles as Maritza Ramos on the award-winning, Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated Netflix series "Orange Is The New Black" (for which she received two Screen Actors Guild awards) and as Lina in CW's breakout hit, "Jane The Virgin."
