Vampire slaying queen Sarah Michelle Gellar was promoting her new show ‘Wolf Pack’ this week when she was given a brief introduction to the meaning of MOTHER in the LGBTQ+ community.
Buff- we mean Sarah, was asked by Gay Times’ Sam Damshenas about being an LGBTQ+ icon, at which point she let the audience know she had just found out about the M saying, typically applied to female icons in entertainment.
“When the gays love a woman, we think MOTHER”, Damshenas informed her, to which the
gays crowd let out a cheer of MOTHERS at the newly-enlightened actress.

SMG was in town to promote new supernatural series Wolf Pack. Along with executive-producing the series, Gellar also plays series-regular Kristin Ramsey, an arson investigator who gets more than she bargained for while looking into a California wildfire with supernatural origins.
Gellar is, of course, known for a number of iconic roles, including Cruel Intentions, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and as the star of generation-defining TV series Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Which we can neither confirm or deny we still watch on an almost religious cycle.
Although clearly a huge drawing point for the show, Gellar has said in numerous interviews that fans may have to wait a few episodes to understand the significance of her character, Kristin, and what role she will play in the supernatural narrative.
We cannot WAIT.
Wolf Pack premiers Jan 26 on Paramount+. Trailer below.
