Patricia Velásquez recently released her memoir "Straight Walk: A Supermodel's Journey to Finding Her Truth" in which she discussed her life as a lesbian Latina supermodel and "came out' publicly to inspire others to live truthfully. She credits her mother with motivating her to come out to inspire others.
Her coming out has brought her much attention as she has been on the cover of magazines "Curve" and "Estampas" since the announcement and some entertainment fans believe that it will help inspire many young Latino women to live 'truthfully' but there is potentially another benefit to her coming out.
Some entertainment fans anticipate that her coming out publicly is going to have a huge positive impact on her entertainment career as the working environment for gays and lesbians have changed considerably in Hollywood. Several years ago one could not imagine a movie such as the much talked about movie "Freeheld" which stars lesbian Ellen Page and actress Julianne Moore being on the big screens of Hollywood in a movie about the experiences of a lesbian couple but yet in 2015 it will be one of the most anticipated films.
For a beautiful lesbian model/actress such as Patricia Velasquez coming out publicly could actually enhance her appeal to some filmmakers looking for someone to play a lesbian or bisexual character in a movie and similar to Ellen Page allows her to live her life truthfully.
There is another aspect of her image that has not disappeared and this her being looked at as a sex symbol both to men and women. Her coming out as a lesbian is bringing much attention to her film "Liz in September", a dramatic film and also has some social media entertainment fans dreaming of a potential film scene in which she acts opposite or has an 'intimate' scene with one of Hollywood's 'It" lesbians/bisexual actresses, Michelle Rodriguez.
Patricia Velásquez is a supermodel whose film career is looking like it will soon be receiving a 'boost' due to her decision to 'live truthfully' as a lesbian, proof that the truth can both make one feel free and open doors on both a personal and professional level.
