Pam Grier Hopes Lesbian Show Will Stamp Out Myths
Actress PAM GRIER is hoping her new TV show about a group of lesbians will serve to educate the public and dispel negative stereotypes.
The iconic FOXY BROWN star joins JENNIFER BEALS in THE L WORD, which hits American TV screens on Sunday (18JAN04) and hopes to showcase non-heterosexual women in a more realistic light.
Grier says, "Our society has evolved and we're much smarter and much more tolerant and accepting.
"This is my family of acceptance and I know what it's like. A group of women who are lesbian or bisexual or curious or whatever can't possibly change their sexuality like I can't change the colour of my skin.
"And as we start talking about the depths of our characters, I think our society will be enlightened and educated and informed. And there won't be the myths and the stereotypes which are so negative."16/01/2004 09:53
