Amy Dresner is a Los Angeles native, who certainly possesses the wit (and gene pool) of a standout comic. The offspring of a comedy-writing father and fashion-designing mother, she never lacked material growing up. But Amy always fantasized about being a comic, despite not immediately pursuing it. Now, she is gaining traction within and outside of California, and she is doing it by baring it ALL. Dealing with tough subject matter and laughing at herself every step of the way, nothing is off-limits for Dresner. She invited CherryGRRL to listen to her risqué and extremely funny exploration of addiction, recovery, sexuality and self.
When normal police work fails, Emma Stahl is the hero you need. A tough-as-nails super spy trained in the arts of combat, firearms, and womanizing, she gets the job done. Originally conceived to go where no other webseries has gone before, the relatively large scale show garnered attention in a similar vein to Anyone But Me, casting sexy, talented female leads and putting them in the situations that the lesbian community wants to see. CherryGRRL spoke to the producer, Sandra Uredat, about the inspiration behind the series and the need for a lesbian super spy in the United States.
Nicole Pacent is the object of a lot of people’s affection, and with good reason. As Aster on the massive hit of a web series Anyone But Me (ABM), she’s become the poster child for young, impulsive, risky lesbian love. But there’s so much more to her than the title of actress. She’s charming, beautiful, sharp as a knife, and she took some time away from her new LA lifestyle to talk to us about ABM and their fund-raising efforts, the emotional end to Season 2, and what she looks for in a mate.
On one brisk Autumn night in New York City, a writer from CherryGRRL and her lovely assistant attended the 9th annual GLAAD OUTAuction. The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation presented the event, in coordination with Bud Light, Rokk Vodka and inviting partner Lexus. The fantastic event celebrated the artwork of 100 emerging artists through a silent auction, and featured the auction of works by Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, Dali and more. Photographer David LaChapelle accepted the annual “Out in Art” Award for raising awareness of the LGBTQ community through his work, from artist and heiress, Daphne Guinness.
