Evan Rachel, Rising

Evan Rachel Wood has seized her #MeToo moment, onscreen and off.


Beginning with Lifetime’s Once and Again, in which she falls in love with her best friend, Mischa Barton, all the way through to The Wrestler, in which she plays the estranged lesbian daughter of Mickey Rourke, Evan Rachel Wood has never shied away from playing queer characters. More recently, she appeared opposite Ellen Page in Into the Forest and in Allure she delivers a startling portrayal of a lesbian abuser. Wood’s choice of roles is fearless, as befits a child actor who grew up with Jodie Foster as a career influence. While 10 years ago Wood didn’t publicly identify as bisexual, she’s been more forthcoming on social media; she briefly dated Kate Moennig after a visible Twitter flirtation, and in this interview she opens up about bisexual acceptance. Importantly, she revealed to Rolling Stone in 2016, and again on her YouTube channel, that she was a victim of sexual assault. In February of this year, Wood went to Washington, D.C., to testify before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations as a rape survivor in the hope of moving the needle on legislation around sexual assault, and making a significant difference in the conversation about the need to increase legal protections for survivors. When I caught up with Wood she was all fired up and ready to discuss the empowerment of women who have survived sexual abuse.

About Curve

S ummer is synonymous with Pride, as destinations all around the globe hold LGBTQ celebrations from June through September in a time of sunshine, self-expression, and socializing. It’s the season when we bask in the feeling of coming into our own, together. This issue, with rumors that beloved lesbian TV show The L Word will be revived by Showtime, we caught up with Kate Moennig, who played the iconic character of Shane. We also spoke with liberal political commentator Sally Kohn about her book The Opposite of Hate, which urges us to emphasize what connects us rather than what divides us. And, as your soundtrack for the pleasant weeks ahead, we recommend putting the unstoppable out musician Hayley Kiyoko on your playlist. We also put Montreal and Oakland on your map, and we hope you’ll feel inspired to join other women in life-changing adventures with Olivia Travel. Finally, I would like to send a sincere thank you to the many readers who contacted us about Curve’s relaunch. We’re as delighted as you are with the new direction!
