Gold Stars[edit]

Lane debuted comedy web series Gold Stars, which Lane created, wrote, directed, stars in, produced and created original music for, on YouTube in 2014.[20] The show follows two low income, freelancing women in their 20s navigating gender identity, feminism, Craigslist jobs, and sexuality in New York City.

Co-creator of MTV's Daria, Susie Lewis, endorsed the show saying "Warms my heart when young, talented women continue to create & write stories about strong females. Like. Follow."[21]

The show also received positive reviews from After Ellen,[22] Autostraddle,[23] and Curve Magazine[24] where critic Amanda Guilford wrote that Gold Stars "brings to the screen an unlikely friendship that draws you in and makes you feel like you're watching your own life" noting that main characters Cassie and Anna are "people you'd hope to run into on the street or have over for a rousing game of Cards Against Humanity" and stated the web series "smacks of clever banter and amusing quips that shows two people making the best of situations in order to remain the people they want to be."

Personal life[edit]

Lane is also a vocalist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist.[17]
