Straight UP! - Lesly Kahn - 3/12/2018

Hosted by Brenda Castillo Nogales, Straight UP! gets straight to the point. No tip toeing around subjects and no nonsense. Discussions can be anything and everything related to the human experience, including subjects that people shy away from like religion, sex, and politics. The time is now to get rid of the clutter and just talk Straight UP!

On this episode of Straight UP! Actors Patricia Rae & Julissa Calderon give their opinion on Hollywood renowned acting coach Lesly Kahn who came under fire for urging a white actress to change her identity to “Rosa Ramirez.” As it is Latinas are severely underrepresented in film and television with majority of casting going to stereotypical roles such as "sexy" and "spicy." Take a listen!
