Bobbitt was 24, a relatively recent immigrant to the U. All the jokes about the need for men to be wary of women lest they, too, be Bobbitted. Robin Williams was including a Lorena bit in one of his stand-up shows—complete with a mocking Spanish accent born in Ecuador, Lorena had moved from Venezuela to Virginia, where she had family, in the late s. The jokes, and the evident delight the Americans of the time took in them, are among the many things to come up for censure in Lorenathe Amazon docuseries exploring the tangled fates of Lorena and her now—ex-husband. It is telling, in that regard, that Franken and Letterman make appearances, via archival footage, in the series.

Feeling there were no spaces specifically for translatinas, trans sex workers, and HIV-positive trans women, Lorena began creating these spaces in her own apartment, and eventually with organizations across Queens and the rest of New York City.
