Part of what I enjoy about my job at the paper is that I get to meet some really interesting people that I probably wouldn’t have met otherwise.  Cachita is one of those people.  I hadn’t heard of her before this assignment but now that I have, I’m a fan.  Thanks job.  Originally from Cuba, Cachita rose to stardom on the Univision Spanish-language channel where she claims she was the first transsexual on Latin television in the United States.   She’s in Asheville hosting Western North Carolina’s Fiesta Latina.  She was incredibly gracious and great to photograph.  You can see the article we ran here.
