Influences[edit]

Asked about the extent to which her films draw on her life experience, Williams responded, "I had never seen a show that depicted what life was like for me and my friends. We’re queer and we love it. We don’t wish we were straight – the opposite, in fact. We dress like boys, listen to indie bands, and canoodle with cute girls. I think all good writing has to be autobiographical to some extent."[9]
