Adoptees Who Rock: Plays, Stand up, Films, Oh, My!

Adoptees kick derriere!  Here’s some proof, dear reader.

KS Stevens – Per Go Magazine: ” Playwright and producer KS Stevens recently took home the Miss LEZ 2009 title in the annual New York City queer pageant produced by nightlife impresario Murray Hill. Stevens has enjoyed successful off-off Broadway productions of her plays Yellow Lens and Butch Mamas, the latter a well-crafted ensemble comedy that focused on the sticky business of lesbian reproduction and insemination, which ran for two weeks at the WOW Café Theater. Stevens is generous with her talents. Her latest venture, the web series Queer Arts Now, which she co-produces and co-hosts, focuses on other LGBT artists in NYC. Stevens says, “It is my hope that my works inspire dialogue and motivate individuals to look at characters, situations and stereotypes with fresh eyes, so that we can empathize and have more respect for ourselves and each other.” (source)

    Thanks so much for highlighting KS – not only is she a brilliant writer, but she is incredibly nice and a kick-ass paddle tennis player. Lucky for me she lives in the next building and my son (who worships her!) and I get to see her all the time. She just totally rocks.
