Alan Ball's LGBT Vision: Audio Interview

We had the rare opportunity to have a conversation with Oscar & Emmy Award Winner Alan Ball about our LGBT community in the media, his new HBO Series "True Blood" & his new movie "Towelhead." Alan Ball is an Academy Award-winning screenwriter, director, producer & occasional actor, who is best known for writing the screenplay for the Oscar winning film "American Beauty" & for creating the HBO original drama series "Six Feet Under." He is also openly gay & a strong voice for our LGBT community.

"True Blood" is a new TV series based on the "Southern Vampire Mysteries" books by Charlaine Harris & adapted for television by Alan. The series is produced by HBO in association with Ball's production company. The show details the fictional co-existence of vampires & humans in a small Louisiana town after Japanese-made synthetic blood "TruBlood" becomes available for purchase. Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic waitress @ a diner who falls in love with one of the vampires, Bill Compton played by Stephen Moyer. The show is on Sunday nights @ 9PM EST on HBO....Check it OUT: More Info & Trailer......
