She’s choosing to stay here and to aspire to less than she’s capable of. That led to questions about her past, who are Stevie’s parents and more.” Continue reading.

From Will Thorne of Variety:

“A girl came up to me on the street and said the show changed the dynamic in her family. Her brother’s gay, and her parents had never accepted him. But by watching the way that Johnny and Moira interact with David in our show — how accepting they are — it was able to inform this girl’s parents in ways they hadn’t seen before.

And for us, any chance we get to project a world where things are good and right, that’s all we can hope to do.” Continue reading.
