“The Gaybysitters Club”


At the end of September, I starred in writer/director Savannah Dooley’s funny and tender queer parody of the classic beloved Ann M. Martin series “The Babysitters Club.” When I read those books to pieces back when I was a kid, I never thought of myself as sporty, outspoken Kristy; I was nerdy like Mary Anne, artsy like Claudia, and from New York like Stacey. Getting to play this character’s coming out story was very meaningful to me, and getting to work with an all-female, queer and/or trans or non-binary cast and crew was like filming Disneyland for all of us.
