Personal Quote:

[on how Glee (2009)'s Santana is a gay fan favorite] Well, I love my gay bars - I go all the time - and we'll literally be recognized more at gay bars than anywhere else. In fact, I don't get recognized anywhere except for gay bars. The gay boys will be like, "Oh, my God, I'm talking to Santana!" They only call me "Santana". It's awesome. See more »
