Heather Matarazzo & Shannon Purser on Playing Lesbian Icons in Equal


Equal during LGBTQ+ History Month on HBO Max earlier this year. The series implemented archival footage, voice-over, and reenactments of events to amplify the voices of those courageous queer people who knocked down barriers for generations to follow.Among those whose story was told in the first episode were Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin, a lesbian couple who not only fought for LGBTQ+ rights but whose epic love story endures.

In a kind of passing of the torch from one generation to queer women that came after Martin and Lyon, out actors Heather Matarazzo (Welcome to the Dollhouse, The Princess Diaries) and Shannon Purser (Riverdale, Stranger Things) play the couple in Equal.
