GA Voice - - LGBT AT­LANTA -

Drago: I had been work­ing out the idea about a play about vir­gin sac­ri­fice to a vol­cano and what hap­pens in a small town when ev­ery­thing goes hay­wire. I had some scenes and an out­line and pre­sented it to Weird Sis­ters. They liked it, so we started de­vel­op­ing it to­gether.

There are all these horny high school movies, such as “Porky’s” and “Losin’ It,” and the in­ter­est­ing thing to me is that these are sex come­dies about try­ing to get laid from a male per­spec­tive. I wanted to set up some cir­cum­stances in which we see fe­male char­ac­ters pur­su­ing this.

I knew I wanted to make this a strong fem­i­nist state­ment about not only own­ing your sex­u­al­ity but women sup­port­ing women and non­judg­ment among peers and friends. Weird Sis­ters is all about fe­maledriven projects.

Ge­or­gia Voice: Johnny, how did “Hot Pink” come up?

Why do you think young men can get laid with no reper­cus­sions and women can’t?
