The L Word’s Jillian Mercado on Fighting the Stigma
Today on Vulnerable, I chat with actress, model, activist and all around icon, Jillian Mercado! Jillian plays Maribel Suarez in “The L Word: Generation Q.” She's a prominent figure in the fashion world challenging beauty ideals and redefining traditional norms in the industry.
She opens up about advocating for more representation for people with disabilities, starting her initiative called Black Disabled Creatives and even being nominated for a GLAAD award!
