Take off with Leisha Hailey and Uh Huh Her

Uh Huh Her

As the super-loveable character “Alice” on “The ‘L’ Word” and now as a musician in the lesbian power-duo Uh Huh Her, Leisha Hailey has endeared herself in the hearts and minds of the LGBT community.

Now on the new “Keep-A-Breast” breast cancer awareness tour with Uh Huh Her, Leisha and band mate Camila Grey bring their electro-indie music to Vinyl in Atlanta on Oct. 21 in an all-ages show.

The GA Voice was originally scheduled to chat with Leisha Hailey on Sept. 26. The call was postponed, however, when Hailey and Grey, who are also a couple, were evicted from a Southwest Airlines flight Sept. 25 for kissing. Hailey complained about the incident on Twitter, which sparked national headlines and drew statements from both the couple and the airline, which sponsors several gay rights organizations.
