The Office on Asian and Pacific Islander Affairs in DC is hosting a screening of the film I Am next Thursday.

Brittany Snow talked with OUT about her character’s perceived queerness.

“We never set out to make her anything,” Snow says of Chloe, who cornered Beca in the shower and demanded she sing during the first film. “It was never supposed be bisexual or lesbian. I think she was one of those girls who love everyone—but people can take that however they want it.”

“I think the way I first understood my lesbianism, before I had more of a political awareness of it, was like: Oh, I’m a man trapped in a female body. I would’ve just gone down that road if it had been there. But I’m so glad it wasn’t, because I really like being this kind of unusual woman. I like making this new space in the world.”
