Some words from the ‘Real L Word’s Mikey Koffman during her Portland visit

Mikey takes part in the "gun show" at Dingos

The Real L Word just presented its finale with a Portland appearance by co-star Mikey Koffman the recent weekend of the 15th and I’m all kinds of ambivalent and intrigued.

Firstly, many Portlanders may not have tuned into the show at all, seeing as Los Angeles seems so different from us, even if we do share a sexuality. Autostraddle gives […]
