Celebrate LGBT Media with Lea DeLaria & More!
Lea DeLaria seems to have achieved stardom with her stand out role as Big Boo in the Neflix hit series Orange Is The New Black. Yes, she went from being able to walk around a city with the occasional, “Hey its You!” to not being able to enter a suburban Dollar Store without being asked for a picture. The fact is, Lea has actually been a professional Lesbian for over 30 years. Before that, she freelanced.
In 1993, Ms. DeLaria was the first openly gay comic to perform on television in America. This launched her into world recognition.
Prior to her success on OITNB, she was seen in numerous television series, Californication, One Life To Live, SVU, Will and Grace, The Oblongs, Friends and even Matlock as well as movies like The First Wives Club, Edge Of Seventeen, Dear Dumb Diary, Fat Rose and Squeaky and Attack Of The Big Haired Lesbians.
There are far too many On and off-Broadway credits to mention, but the stand outs include, Obie and Theater World Awards, a Drama Desk Nomination and a Drama League Honoree for On The Town; Drama League Honoree for Happy Days; an Ovation Nomination for Boys From Syracuse; and portraying both Eddie and Dr. Scott in the Tony nominated revival of The Rocky Horror Show.
If that is not enough, Lea has 5 records out on the Warner Jazz and Classics label, and her book “Lea’s Book Of Rules For The World” is in its third printing at Bantam Doubleday and Dell.
So yeah, she is Big Boo, but she’s all that too.
Join Lea and other LGBT actors, activists, and creators at The Box Scene Project’s Spotlight on Diversity!
