Tina Fey and Tituss Burgess were interviewed by Out Magazine to talk about the new Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt special that will be released on Netflix next month. There’s a bunch of new information about the special, so be sure to read it!
So, you voted?” The mail clerk pointed to my sticker.
It was 2016 and I was absolutely 100 percent “with her,” ready to see Hillary Clinton break through sexism and the ultimate glass ceiling by becoming the first female president. I’d been a Hillary supporter for a long time, since I helped launch the lesbian magazine Girlfriends in 1992. That same year, Hillary relocated to Washington, D.C., for her husband’s new job. Her inability to be the kind of wife to stay quiet and look pretty cursed her for many conservatives in the decades to come.
If you’d asked if anyone was more qualified to run the country at that moment in November 2016, I would have said “No.” Still, when the clerk pointed at my T-shirt and said, “I didn’t even know they were running,” I couldn’t help myself. I just blurted, “Oh my God, I wish!”
You see, the dream team represented on my shirt was Amy Poehler and Tina Fey (although I would have reversed their standing, supporting Fey for president). “Bitches Get Shit Done,” the tagline proclaimed.
Indeed they do. On the verge of scoring yet another comedy first — with the upcoming interactive Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Netflix special (featuring the show’s gay lead Tituss Burgess) — Fey continues to demonstrate just what a determined woman can accomplish.
