I’m here with Leo and Rose Annie from the l word next generation cue I have like a young queer audience and I thought it’d be cute if they submitted coming out just like their stories and We could react together. I thought it’d be cute. I’m ready for ya My mom was the second adult I told and she was only mad because I didn’t tell her first that’s really sweet But I did I had my mom flying I lived in New York at the time I had her fly in to tell her something I take the whole weekend and then I finally told her and she was they had the greatest response and then Once we went through our whole emotional thing together is like, can you just tell the rest of the family? Oh my gosh, I love this person My granddad said all gays go to home and I said well, I’ve always wanted to meet Satan You were incredible I love that That is a good comeback, yeah right props, I made a scavenger hunt with pictures spelling out I’m by Acually a street scene. Yes Wow and if they put like an NSYNC CD I Don’t have instinct knows I don’t wonder if they know that they wrote my anthem. Oh my goodness I said a meme that says quote the only test I ever East was the mi gay test My granddad hugged me and yelled we love boobs when I told him I was bisexual I Think that’s awesome. Your granddad is awesome. I came out to my cousin while buying a gay poster at Walmart What was the gate? say That’s the mystery my uncle asked me what I wanted for Christmas And I told him a girlfriend and he said he can’t buy that on Amazon Can’t buy a girl I Came out to my grandma and she said I’ve always had a gaydar and you were on it Like waiting Even if they’re in denial for a little while, they still deep down in their psychic now Yeah, I told my best friend over text and I was so scared because she’s from a very religious family But she was super accepting and I felt a huge weight lifted from my shoulders. Oh my gosh This is so nice, there’s a lot of touch on um religion and sexuality in the show, too Yeah, so my character grew up Catholic and I’ve never seen any character on TV sort of as an adult deal with their queer identity and their religious upbringing and it was really fun to do and I’m so excited for people to see the story just because I Feel like it needs to be told I wish I had came out at a panic at the disco concert to the song girls girls boys Okay song no better time to come out then at a concert. I think it should be playing right now Do you guys know that song? Yes, do I know that song? I listen, I’m gonna get than this girl like I came out to my family at a doctor’s appointment because the doctor asked if I could get pregnant that leg lariat Wow I mean, you know you could I just said no Yes, I’m like what I hope you’re okay I just wanna give you a hug That’s what I want to do the great doctor again The bold aspect all these like just throwing something out there like really just outright saying something like that I son. That’s amazing. What’s your favorite scene from the first episode? I have to say a lot of my favorites Favorite scenes from the original we’re watching Leisha interact with Rafi That was yeah. That was that was some from the new season Don’t knowwe like that. Oh, you’re so all of it. Oh My friend did the classic stumble out of the pantry because she’s pansexual Yeah, it was like like yeah, I couldn’t read it first that’s is that is that a term No entry who made it in the closet, or you can come out of the pantry Because you’re modern if you’re buying or where would you come out of an insane concert? Came out of the pantry at 10:00 That’s clever I’m just serving up my sexuality. Oh my god, my dad will find out when he gets an invitation to my weddings I was saying that’s very I got this one very accurate to the season Danny kind of like like she kind of Rekindles with her dad a little bit getting well, I mean, I don’t know the rest Wailers I walked up to my mom on April Fool’s Day and said I’m straight I was also crying so I think she got it. Oh I came out to my mom and she spent three years calling it a phase until one day I came home with my girlfriend looked her dead in the face and said I told you it wasn’t a phase I Mean, you know what? So like I said call story right typical story and like I said, Like even if they’re in denial deep down in their psyche They have to accept it at some point good for this person for just saying it’s not a phase mom in the first place Yeah, I told my mom I was bi and she said me too That’s cute Your mom that is a clap. That is a Yes, my friends dared me to kiss a boy and sitting next to him was my crush I kissed her instead Uh-oh. All right. It’s palsy Wow Stories my aunt saw my Instagram stories, and she texted me saying she couldn’t wait to take me to pride That’s adorable. Yeah That’s so I just got chills Who is your favorite character? Oh, yeah of the originals. Okay. The original is Shane fan Wow, do you have any advice for any queer kids that maybe are having like coming-out stories where maybe like they have these situations and Things don’t go as well Before I get into my stuff and goes. Oh sure we didn’t want people to feel like Queer life is sad and is like you know these these really heavy coming out stories over and over again because I feel like with some Television shows and just like content in general if there’s one queer character. You kind of get saddled with oh It’s like it’s like a coming-out story and I think weed in this show We don’t have that and it kind of just focuses on everyday trials, you know what I mean? like things that we go through in our everyday lives in our relationships with our with our colleagues or our significant others our family Like things that we all deal with that are that are not like the that is in a very important portion of our lives but yeah, I Feel like it gives people the opportunity to see past what they’re going through right and see what their life could be like once you fully accept yourself, there are just so many people waiting to love you and accept you up and if you are Not happy in the situation you were in There is a place for you in the world So if you are old enough and you have the means get out if them where you are isn’t serving you. I love that I think I want to say don’t don’t underestimate the power that you have don’t underestimate how strong you can be and and how how bold you can be in this situation just you know, do whatever feels good to you rip off the band-aid if that means just Telling someone and and know that no matter what you you are enough Your loved people love you. People will accept you. It’s it’s not everything’s gonna be. Okay. Yeah go with your pace on your time I wish somebody told me that Hannah Montana’s best of both worlds came on and I came out as bi Great yeah, Adi bad Elia B I played I kissed a girl by Katy Perry in the ukulele and sang it to my grandma Wow I love the ukulele my Nana told my granddad I had a date with a girl and he said okay, she deserves a pretty girlfriend Makes me say all the right things. Yeah, usually, you know, it’s like down with the patriarchy but Patriotic granddad. Yeah, I’m crushing. He also just realizes her self-worth like you do deserve a pretty girlfriend I came out to my dad this year as bi and it was the most genuine. I love you that I’ve heard in years I’m there crying. Oh my goodness. Oh my god. I got to that dad. Oh dad I Love this I came out to my dog, and he accepted me Well, if someone was watching this and maybe she didn’t have a good experience What’s like something you’d want to tell them that it’s gonna be? Hey, yeah and that in that man I mean, I just think it can it can feel very hard But you find your people and you find your community and you’re you’re surrounded by so many people that love you eventually, you just it’s it’s It’s a beautiful thing to be clear and it’s a beautiful thing to celebrate and And not to ever be ashamed of it ever and you’ll feel fine. You’ll find your tribe. No, no question and Joe’s Chosen family and that’s saying of this too shall pass. It’s true Why should they watch the show? Well two of my favorite characters on the show are in in selfies Angie and Sophia Singh they’re incredible are two of our youngest actresses and they are so talented and seeing their relationship together on screen is Like one of the most amazing things any last words you’d like to say about the show and just like two young queer kids that might watch this I don’t wanna speak for both of us, but we have talked about this and I think you know we see you and we want to We just want to show that queer life Isn’t always tin to the tragedy but we want people to have a place to see themselves young.
