The L Word

The L Word (2004)

Looking Back - S1-E11

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Dana comes back from spending the night with her manager, Alice pushes Jenny and runs and dives in bed. You can see a good shot of a camera man in the mirror.

LGB Tease - S5-E1

Factual error: The show takes place in L.A, and in this episode (SPOILER ALERT) Tim and Jenny rush off to hastily and ill-advisedly get married. Los Angeles is three-four hours away from Vegas, where most quickie weddings are done, but a road sign shows them heading to Lake Tahoe/Reno, which is another four hours further away than that. It's just not plausible that they would skip Vegas, where everyone in Los Angeles goes for this purpose, to drive hours further along when they're in such a hurry. It does, however, make sense if you're either ignorant of California/Nevada geography, or if your show is filmed in woodsy British Columbia, where no location can be easily found that looks like the approach to Vegas. Also, the road sign reads, "Tahoe" - an obvious fake. Actual road signs read "Lake Tahoe" and they always show how many miles away it is.

Show generally

Factual error: (Note: there's no category for Season 1 yet). In the show where (SPOILERS.) Tim rashly and suddenly rushes Jenny off to get married, a sign shows them driving to "Tahoe". 1) Actual road signs in that region read, "Lake Tahoe", not "Tahoe". 2) There are no "quickie" marriages in Lake Tahoe, but there are quickie marriages another 50 miles on in Reno. 3) They live in Los Angeles, and Las Vegas is much, much closer than Reno/Tahoe (Vegas is a 4-hour drive; Reno is 8 hours.) It's not a character mistake, since they are obviously in a huge hurry to get married, and it's nonsensical even for them to choose to drive 4 hours longer, and a completely different route altogether, when they're in such a rush. It might make sense, however, if you're filming in Vancouver and you don't have any nearby landscapes that look like the desert near Vegas, but you have forest that might pass for the area near Reno/Tahoe.

Question: Of the main cast, do any of the actresses claim to be same-sex orientated in real life? Which ones? I've Googled this, and only found speculations rather than actual answers.

Chosen answer: I read Diva magazine which is a British lesbian magazine - Leisha Hailey and Daniela Sea have both given interviews and have stated without question that they are lesbians. Despite much lesbian disappointment Katherine Moennig will not confirm her sexuality, stating it is personal and not an issue. Although it was once stated by an american publiction Jennifer Beals 'outed her', once published this was denyed by Jennifer stating they had twisted her words. Jennifer Beals has been married twice, Laurel Holloway according to her official website is married, but has stated in many interview since the L Word began that she is bisexual. Mia Krishner is most confusing of all, various interviews she has claimed different things - bisexuality, heterosexuality and bicuriousity...but notably takes lesbian/bisexual/transgender roles. Pam Grier, Rachel Shelly and Erin Daniels have categorically stated they are heterosexual. Janina Gavanker has never made any comment about her sexuality, although all speculations made on Google are that she is straight. Information on Rose Rollins is sparse and wholly speculation. I can add though that Shane's stalker in season one called Lacey is played by Tammy Lyn Micheals, who according to both parties' official websites has been 'married' to Melissa Etheridge since 2003, they also have children.
