With a career that has spanned multiple countries and nearly every U.S. state, Pippa Winslow is a stunning portrait of an artist. Toting names like Universal Pictures, National Geographic and Old Vic, with national theatrical tours to her name in both the United States and the United Kingdom, Winslow has left no stone unturned in the performing arts. The Laughing Lesbian had a chance to catch up with her to ask her a few questions between shows and we are honored to share her humor and wise insights on the stage, what it takes to tour, and how women can define success for themselves.

Katherine Brooks is a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry. Chances are if you haven't heard her name, you've still heard of her projects. Her television credits alone sport several Emmy award winning shows that every teen and twenty-something loved to watch in the late 90's and early 2000's. The Osbournes, Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, Meet the Barkers, The Simple Life, and of course, The Real World. Shortly after her successful stint in reality television, Brooks moved on to short and feature films, with projects touting cast members such as Erin Kelly (LA Cafe Plays, Ruskin Theatre Group), Taryn Manning (8 Mile, Orange is the New Black), Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under, American Horror Story), and Elizabeth Shue (Blunt Talk, CSI). Brooks' work has been the recipient of several awards, including an Audience Award at Outfest and Best Feature Film at the Melbourne Film Festival. Brooks' feature film credits include Loving Annabelle, Waking Madison, and Lost In Time, which is currently in post production and should be available to audiences this fall.
Very rarely am I able to recall the first time I hear a song, but with LP I can tell you where I was, what I was doing and what time it was. That's how big of an impact her music has had on me. I was in a hotel room in Florida late at night flipping channels when I came across a Citi Bank commercial of a girl climbing a huge rock, but what caught my attention was the song playing in the background. This was before Iphone's could instantly tell you what song was playing so I memorized two words and was instantly googling. I googled for a good hour until I found LP and her song "INTO THE WILD" and from that moment I was hooked.
The Laughing Lesbians are at it again! This time we got a chance to chat up the sassy and sexy Rachel B, who leaves no question; she's the boss! Rachel was delightfully sweet when we spoke with her and honestly, we were not expecting the kick-ass babe that rocked the screen in her debut music video for her aptly named song "I'm The Boss." Rachel was able to take a quick break from taking names and pounding out the jams to talk to us about her experience as a musician and what the future holds for her. We can't wait to see what this lady has in store!
In less than two weeks Carol will be hitting the big screen. We got a chance to have a quick chat with screenwriter, Phyllis Nagy, and got a tiny glimpse into her journey of over fifteen years as she brought Carol, from Patricia Highsmith's novel, "The Price of Salt", to the already award winning film. It has been such an honor to speak with Phyllis and to get an inside look at the transition of one masterpiece into another.
Lea DeLaria: Uncensored and Unedited
She is everyone’s favorite butch, Big Boo, from the hit show “Orange is the New Black.” In an exclusive interview, Chrystal and Emily from The Laughing Lesbian got up close and personal with the woman behind the character, or in this case, just the woman. Lea DeLaria is proud of who she is and where she is in life and it is evident by her uninhibited voice in this world. She isn’t after shock value; she is just her true authentic self and if you can’t handle her, well, she doesn’t care.
Chrystal and Emily from The Laughing Lesbian got an opportunity to have a chat with Madeline Stuart, the beautiful young girl from Australia who is taking the world by storm. Madeline has Downs Syndrome, but it hasn’t held her back from reaching her goals. Madeline wanted to be a model, and with determination, hard work and support from her wonderful mother, she became just that and more! She has become an inspiration to people all around the world and believes that everyone is beautiful and everyone has the ability to make their dreams a reality.
The Laughing Lesbian has a pretty simple motto: "Empowered Women Empowering Women." We are always on the look out for diverse and brave women who are willing to share their story with us. When I found Harnaam though Instagram I knew we had to interview her. This young woman is everything we hold sacred. She is beautiful, brave, inspiring and most of all she is empowering of others. Harnaam struggled throughout her life, dealing with bulling about her facial hair and self harm due to horrible depression. But like a Phoenix (check out her gorgeous phoenix tattoo!) she rose from the ashes and has become a woman we can all admire. Chrystal and I are so honored to get to speak with Harnaam and we are so excited to share her with you! Recently Harnaam did a photo shoot (just for fun, Harnaam isn't getting married just yet!) with Urban Bridesmaid Photography to show the world just how beautiful she really is. We hope you enjoy this interview as much as we enjoyed speaking with Harnaam.
