Featured reader of the week:
Kelly, from Savannah, GA
1.)What video is currently embedded on your profile and why?
I think that the Otalia storyline is one of the most beautifully written love stories I have seen for awhile, gay or straight, and this scene is really pivotal to moving the story along and bringing this couple together. I like that the writers are addressing real issues that people who are coming out, or are experiencing feelings for the same sex for the first time, have to face, and are doing so in a way that is very true to life and respectful of the GLBT community.
A scene from Guiding Light
2.) When and where have you met a celebrity?
If I could meet any celebrity now I would have to pick either Jennifer Garner or Sarah Michelle Gellar, they were my idols (OK, crushes) growing up for their portrayal of these incredibly strong, kick-ass female lead characters.
3.) What lesbian/bi pop culture character are you most like, and why?
A lot of people tend to associate female athletics with lesbianism, but, because of that stereotype, straight female athletes can be very defensive and homophobic. More often then not, being gay and being involved in athletics can be extremely difficult.
4.) What movie star does your pet most resemble?
5) When did you start reading AE, or what’s your favorite AE feature?
