Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, the
co-stars and co-creators of Comedy Central's hit comedy Broad
City, cover the April issue of gay glossy Out.
Now in its third season, Broad City
is being called groundbreaking for its unapologetic sexuality.
“It's a privilege that we get to be
this fluid,” Glazer
said. “Also, women's sexuality, women's queerdom – is much
less threatening to the mainstream than men's.”
Jacobson said that viewers are often
confused by the sexual ambiguity of the show's characters.
“I think when people watch it,
they're like, 'What's the deal?' But it shouldn't be a deal. It's
like, why can't anyone hook up with whoever they want?”
Glazer added: “I was just reading
this article in which Lena [Dunham] interviewed Gloria Steinem.
There was this awesome quote that I relate to, where Gloria said that
your old lovers become some of your closest friends. And I find that
too. And I like that all that can exist in the same space: Sexual,
romantic, friendly feelings. That's sexual fluidity to me.”
