For the 89th Academy Awards, VICE ran this series of interviews with 18 celebrities and insiders about the state of LGBTQ Hollywood. I interviewed Emmy Award-winning star Lena Waithe (quoted here), Hollywood Reporter senior writer Seth Abramovitch, HBO's “Looking” creator and producer Michael Lannan, and the original "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" director Becky Smith.

 "Eighteen Celebrities and Industry Leaders Explain How to Come Out in Hollywood" was published in VICE on Feb. 24, 2017.  The thumbnail photo of Lena Waithe on the “work” page of this website is by Gage Skidmore.   Read the entire interview package    here   . And see more of my VICE writing    here   .
