This morning I met with Ruth Selwyn, creator of Lizzy the Lezzy, at the coffeeshop under the gay center in Gan Meir Park. Ruth’s sometimes rude but always lovable animated character, Lizzy, is the first stand up comedy lesbian animated character. She has made her way around the world- from Logo to the L Word, picking up millions of online views along the way. My personal favorite video is her music video, “I’m a lesbian” which features some of Israel’s top LGBTQ folk and an incredibly catchy chorus you’ll find yourself singing in the most (in)appropriate places.
And, in honor of Valentine’s Day, Lizzy’s e-cards can help express your true thoughts to your girlfriend, lover, or “roommate.” Thanks, Lizzy!
