Rosanny on…

Gen Q sex scenes and body image

“I was like, ‘I don’t want to hate my body anymore. I want to love my body and I want to be happy in my body, so if this sex scene is going to help me get closer to that, then let’s do it.’”

Watching The L Word as a teen

“It was something that I had never seen on television before. The L Word opened my eyes in terms of what love could look like.”

Onscreen representation

“I can’t remember watching a television show and thinking, ‘Oh! There’s that little Dominican girl from New York following her dreams’. Very sad, but also very true, and it’s sad to think that there are millions of people who feel that way. Most of the world feels that way, probably.”
