People have this perception of a gay lifestyle - that it's so different, when really it's exactly the same. Problems at work. Problems at home. Jealousy. It runs the gamut. But I think maybe that's why this show is a hit: People identify with it, regardless. - On why The L Word (2004) has achieved crossover status by focusing less on "lesbian issues" per se.
It was just amazing to finally see yourself represented. That's why I carry so much pride about being on this show. I'm excited to be a part of it because I know how big it was for me.
