Venezuelan actress/model Patricia Velasquez is releasing a memoir, Straight Walk, where she publicly discusses her identity as a lesbian for the first time.

Velasquez writes that in the 1990s she was modeling in Paris when she met comedian Sandra Bernhard after a fashion show and went back to her hotel with her.

Velasquez recalls this meeting as the first time she ever kissed a woman. On their resulting romance she writes “I was deeply in love with Sandra in a way I’d never experienced before” and that she “cried for two years” after the relationship ended.
