Demi Lovato talks about her first post-Disney gig on Glee with The LA Times.

“Once I turned 19, I played a lesbian on Glee. But I didn’t necessarily go to Glee and say, ‘I want to play a lesbian because I think it’ll be a departure.’ It was just a really cool role.”

SiriusXM radio host Taylor Strecker talks about coming out and wanting to remain label-less.

Cameron Esposito and Rhea Butcher chat with Vulture about Take My Wife and encountering hostile audiences. Cameron shares one such experience:

God, somebody once called my a dyke in the middle of a TV taping. Like screamed it out from the audience. I was taping something for Carson Daly and his current show, Last Call. And they had the nicest, best, kindest producers. We were taping it at a comedy club, so it wasn’t in a studio. But the audience knew it was a TV taping. There were cameras everywhere. What I mean by that is what you’re supposed to do as an audience at a TV taping is not really interact with the comic, because they can’t use you on television. And a dude stood up a called me a dyke in the middle of my set. I was like, “This is for TV.” Basically I just started over and they edited around it and the package looks great. It looks like it went really well. More traditionally, the experience of being a woman is walking out onstage and people don’t expect to see you. Much more often than hostility is just, it’s a charm offensive. You’ve got to get them on your side.
