  5. Ian Daniel:

    What I take from that is there was a need for these stories, and we’re fulfilling that on some level, there’s a lack of diversity in storytelling, especially on television… and it’s not just about LGBT people, it’s people of color, it’s all minorities… we just need to be aware of what people are experiencing. If you’re not experiencing that and you’re a producer or filmmaker, just take the time to educate yourself a little bit, or to put yourself in someone else’s shoes, and I think that just makes for better content everywhere. For our show, we just want people to have some sort of visceral reaction. Hopefully they like it, but it’s cool if people don’t and we can create a dialogue and have a real conversation.
