100 Women We Love: Liz Feldman
We are thrilled to present the 2013 list of 100 Women We Love - Including...
New York native Liz Feldman was destined to work in television. At the tender age of 18, she was hired as a writer and performer for the Nickelodeon show All That. After moving to Los Angeles, Feldman became a writer-producer on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she won four Emmy Awards. She's also written for the 79th Academy Awards, Blue Collar TV and Hot in Cleveland—and in 2012, the Advocate named her one of its "40 Under 40." Millions have watched the shows Feldman has worked on, but there's one audience she treasures more. "I am most proud of the tiny Internet show I did from my kitchen called This Just Out on AfterEllen.com. It gave me a forum to be my most authentic self in the most ridiculous way," says Feldman. "We showed a wide audience that being gay was something to celebrate and have fun with. I received many amazing emails and messages from the most remote corners of the Earth, thanking me for having a positive impact—I felt like I was doing what I was meant to do." Feldman is currently a writer-producer on the CBS show 2 Broke Girls. -DN
