Getting In Bed with Kristin: An Interview

Oh, haiiiii!

I wanted to post a link to an interview I recently did with the super smart, super lovely, super many-other-things Kristin Russo of Everyone Is Gay! If you are unfamiliar, Everyone Is Gay is an organization that seeks to enrich the lives of LGBTQ youth through humor, honesty and compassion, and they work with parents as well as schools to provide safe, educational environments for students across the country. Kristin has another side project, Getting In Bed with Kristin, in which she interviews various people within and connected to the LGBTQ community, and I had the honor of being her most recent guest!

You can check out her whole series on youtube, but here is a link to our interview (also posted below) where we talk about coming out in Hollywood and having crushes on girls for the first time, and we also give a little bit of thirty-something advice to a Getting In Bed viewer!

(Also I am wearing my Tessuti patterns Annie Dress, yay!)

    Thanks for that, it really put a smile on my face!

    Bravo for being so comfortable with who you are and for being so open about your developing self awareness, it was very insightful.

    You are super cute and you Annie dress looks awesome!

    Lovely interview! I am thinking of showing parts of it during a diversity training I have to do next week. As long as you agree.

      I’m pretty sure it’s fine to show the video for your diversity training class, but you might want to touch base with with Kristin Russo just to be sure- you can find her contact info on her website. Thanks!

    I love this so much! I started to tear up when you teared up because…in a heteronormative society, figuring out your own unique sexuality can be SO HARD (and in a society that stresses pretty strict, binary gender roles, figuring out how you identify and present when it comes to gender can also be really hard). I’ve even gotten “Are you sure you like girls? You act pretty gay” from my progressive, diverse family. And when you don’t have a solid support system (like one of my daughter’s best friends, who was bullied in high school for being gay and couldn’t come out to his broken, dysfunctional family), it’s tragic. And I’m starting to get teary-eyed again, so I’ll just thank you for posting this delightful interview and stop there.
