Evan Rachel Wood Accepts HRC's Visibility Award

On February 8th, 2017, Evan Rachel Wood accepted the Visibility Award at the Human Rights Campaign's Gala in North Carolina. (For those who don't know, HRC is the largest national organization advocating for LGBTQ rights, check out their site linked below for more information). She took the opportunity to discuss her own experience as a bisexual woman and the importance and words and visibility.

TLDR; Her experiences growing up as a bisexual woman and what that means to her as an artist with such visibility. Believes that suffering connects us and will create empathy (very Westworld of her). Encourages everyone to keep fighting and expressing their truth.

I definitely think it's worth the watch. What do you all think? She segues nicely.

Girls 6x02 Promo - "Hostage Situation"

Hannah provides cover for Marnie's secret weekend in Poughkeepsie; Shoshanna enlists Elijah to be her plus-one at a networking event; Jessa's antics lead Shoshanna to reevaluate her post-college friendships.

Thoughts on the premiere? Hannah remains the worst for me, but maybe that's because I'm not a fan of Hannah-centric eps.
