Guine Guin­e­vere Turner (Jud­jude)

Diva (UK) - - Feature | Content -

Guin­eve Guin­e­vere’s CV is packed with im­pres­sive writ­ing, act­ing and di­rect­ing cred­its in­clud­ing sap­phic cin­ema sta­ple Go Fish and riot gr­rrl clas­sic Itty Bitty Titty Com­mit­tee, but you might know her best as Alice’s toxic ex­girl girl­friend Gabby De­veaux in The L Word. In D DFG she plays Jude, the fiery DIVA edi­tor who’s fallen hard for Gemma. It feels like ev­ery­one I know is mak­ing a les­bian web se­ries. It’s good be­cause it’s a plat­form for big­ger out­lets to po­ten­tially pick some­thing up, so it feels like there’s more op­por­tu­nity. I love it when we’re mak­ing stuff that’s still about us – us be­ing les­bians and bi wom women – and also women in our age group group. Not all les­bian and bi cul­ture is youth cultu cul­ture. It’s nice to be treated like we’re still in­ter in­ter­est­ing and sexy. W When I think back to when I was 24 and w what I was do­ing, which was work­ing re­ally hard to make a les­bian fea­ture film [Go F Fish], what’s hap­pen­ing now is ex­cit­ing. Back t then there was noth­ing about reg­u­lar les­bian life. It’s to­tally dif­fer­ent now, which is great. I would have just been con­fused if you had triedtrie to ex­plain this to me when I was 24. I would haveh been like, ‘ They have what? And they do w what? And what’s the in­ter­net again?’ It’s am amaz­ing how much things have changed. I mean, jus just The L Word, which is al­ready over 10 years ago, even if you’d have ex­plained that to me when I was in my early 20s, I would have been like, ‘ Wait! There There’s a TV show, and it’s a les­bian drama, and it lasts f for six years, and I work on it? I name it?’ I would haveh thought, ‘Oh, can we also fly? Are cars in­vis­i­ble in­vis­i­ble?’
