Lena Waithe Covers Vanity Fair


  • Profile written by writer Jacqueline Woodson, photographs by Annie Leibovitz.

  • Lena says she didn't need an Emmy to tell her to work - she's been writing and developing.

  • “The hardest thing about being a black writer in this town is having to pitch your black story to white execs.”

  • The author asks when there'll be a lesbian Moonlight, and Waithe says that already exists in Dee Rees's Pariah.

  • Loves fashion; "I try to wear queer designers who happen to be brown and makin’ shit."

  • When asked about Aziz: "“At the end of the day, what I would hope comes out of this is that we as a society . . . educate ourselves about what consent is—what it looks like, what it feels like, what it sounds like. I think there are both men and women who are still trying to figure it out. We need to be more attuned to each other, pay more attention to each other, in every scenario, and really make sure that, whatever it is we’re doing with someone else, they’re comfortable doing whatever that thing is, and that we’re doing it together. That’s just human kindness and decency.”
