The History of The L Word Online
A little fate and a lot of hard work led us
to where we are today. Okay, so it was a lot of fate,
a bit of persistence, and a great appreciation for Kate Moennig's ...
*ahem* ... body of work.
It all began on July 12, 2000 when a little
show called Young Americans debuted on The WB network. Slicey was immediately (albeit, reluctantly)
drawn to the show and made her first timid ventures online in search of
information about the show and its stars.
A few months later, on the other side of the
world, Oz was also researching YA online. As luck would have
it, we both ended up in the same place.
A couple of years later, fate would strike
again. Well, it was either fate or Slicey's procrastination and poor
planning. Anyhoo, in July 2002, Slicey found herself
stranded in New York City with no way to get to the YA fan gathering
being held in Maryland. Oz and friends to the rescue! Oz and Slicey
spent the hours-long car ride discussing the important things in life... you
know, like The Matrix and of course Ms Moennig.
We decided against starting a Kate Moennig
since there were several good ones out there already. But we never
stopped following Kate's career (and all the YA actors, for that
It was early summer 2003 when we learned that Kate had been
cast in a new lesbian series titled Earthlings. Oz put her research ingenuity to work and
began finding out bits of information about this new series. Whenever
Oz discovered something new, we would send the info to magazines or web
sites we liked (such as www.afterellen.com)
After a couple of months, we decided to keep the info for ourselves and
share it with everyone in our own way, and in October 2003 The L Word Online
This site was created out of a love for the
characters, the subject matter, and of course, Ms. Moennig herself. We
admire the determination and hard work of everyone both in front of the
camera and behind the scenes who put so much effort into creating this
wonderful piece of TV history for us to enjoy each and every week.
