People were curious about what I had to offer, and they were incredibly supportive when I put myself out there.
And although is a comedy, the role itself was in no way mocking or embarrassing trans people. The network requested they edit out the going-in-for-more part, because the kissing was tolerable, but liking it was pushing their boundaries.
