Sorry this Friday Hoyden post is a bit slap-dash, the amount of work I need to complete and the time I have to complete it are both increasing and decreasing with alarming rapidity. So of course I’m on the internet 🙂
Lucy Lawless has to be about the only awesome Kiwi we Australians haven’t unofficially adopted and claimed as our own. She kicked arse as Xena Warrior Princess who was equal to Ares the demi-god and far better than the men who tried to best her and always underestimated her, had a gorgeous sidekick which allowed for some great lesbian URST, and wasn’t stick thin. Apparently after the show finished, in an interview Lucy said she always thought that Xena was lesbian. Although fans could have a good argument that she was bi.
Outside of acting she has supported NZ tourism, protested against Proposition 8 which disallowed same sex marriage in California and was recently arrested while protesting for Greenpeace.
You can even follow her on Twitter @RealLucyLawless.
