"Sarah assumes the life of Beth, who is North American, but Sarah is from working-class South London. So she’s got a very different accent than Beth, obviously. But Sarah has lived here for many years, so she knows the sounds, and it was really fun to play with the levels of when she slips up, when Sarah comes out, when she kind of screws up a little bit… That’s fun to play with, cause it raises the stakes a bit. Makes it a bit more tense.” (x)

If I’m going to have a public platform, I want to use it not just to elevate myself but to elevate issues that are important to me… there are so many more trans folks coming forward and saying, ‘This is who I am, this is my story, I will not be silent anymore, I will not be in hiding anymore,’ and that’s when a movement really happens, right?

"And I thank you. For scrutinizing every detail of my life since the day I moved into this fishbowl. You have pried and snooped and gossiped about me like I was your own personal laboratory subject. How would you like it if I turned your life inside out? If I told all these people that Chad, your husband, slept with the spin class instructor long before me? Well, maybe he acts that way because you BLEW THE ROOFER AT THE CABIN!
