Out writer/actress Lindsay Hicks loves working with women, and says that being on sets with women directors, producers and other crew members has been “the most rewarding part of any project or job.” The star of shows like “The Better Half” (which she also co-created), tello Films’ “The List” and the feature film “Suicide Kale,” Hicks has been fortunate enough to play queer roles in projects helmed by other queer women. “Working among empowered women and gender non-conforming individuals in an effort to help others become empowered and proud of who they are is the ultimate goal and so rewarding when it feels like it is happening,” she says. “I have had a few people reach out to me and tell me that watching a project that I have been involved in has made them want to create their own work, or feel more connected to the world. Being a part of that ripple effect is such an honor.” —TB
