Stepping Into Her Queer Colors: High Maintenance Creator Katja Blichfeld

Stepping into her queer colors. This week we look inside the Closet of this week’s podcast star, co-creator, writer and director of HBO’s High Maintenance, Katja Blichfeld. In her video, Katja busts binaries and revels in the freedom that claiming her queerness at 40 has brought her. No longer concerned with the male gaze, form fitting clothes, makeup or the dark colors that kept her in hiding, Katja is proving to herself and the world of television that being comfortable in your skin is what’s “pretty,” not conforming to fit into a made-up, patriarchal ideal of beauty.
