“My body of work has mirrored my internal transformation with grace and fluidity. My first love was the stage, the metamorphosis in front of audience. That performative spark found flame in my television work—most recently in Younger—as well as a slow-burning film library. My podcast, The Love Bomb, celebrating nontraditional relationships and marginalized individuality, represents my responsibility to a community much greater than myself. Now is the time to share all stories. I’m crafting two books that will drop in the next couple years. My hope for the future is simple: Continue to love myself, love what I do, and find love for every single person in the world, however difficult that may be. There is more good in the world than evil, and the light always outshines. Question everything around you, always.”
