Fellow BuzzFeed alum Amanda Holland created the YouTube channel GirlShipTV, which is dedicated to series run by/for queer women. Her most popular series is called "Drunk Lesbians Watch" where, you guessed it, lesbians get drunk and watch lesbian movies. Brittany has appeared in a few episodes thus far...
Brittany has been working with some really bad ass women: showrunner Julia Vickerman, EP Shadi Petosky (creator of "Danger and Eggs"), Susie Lewis (co-creator of "Daria" which as you know, huge fan of), Laura Zak (co-creator of "Her Story") and Rhonda Cox (producer on "Beavis and Butthead" and "Celebrity Deathmatch").

NewNowNext, Logo's editorial site, features a few of Brittany's essays, like...
"Coming Out To Your Uber Driver" - An essay that remarks on the lack of safety for women in private or small spaces (like an Uber, for instance) while tackling the nuances of revealing your sexual orientation to a driver at the risk of your own safety and comfortability.
"How I Found Lesbians Before YouTube" - With YouTube's restricted mode coming into play, tons of LGBTQ creators are being shafted. Brittany reminisces about the olden days where you had to unironically watch A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila to see a queer woman.
