The L Word
played a big role in many of our coming out stories, and
screenwriter/playwright Ariel Shepherd-Oppenheim (My Little
Pony; Llama Llama; Vampirina) is no exception. However, she
had to deal with the added impact of her mom and older sister
actually being on the show OH MY GOD WHAT YES REALLY BOTH OF THEM.
Ariel talks to us about all this and more; plus, Melissa Etheridge
and labels and biphobia - oh my!
In addition to
her work in animation, Ariel Shepherd-Oppenheim
(IG: @shoppenheim) wrote the award-winning shorts "Fuck
You From LA" and "Dear Sister." Her most
recent play, Wealth, premiered at the Lyric Hyperion
Theatre as part of the Sorority Series.
