“For me, the issue has never been sexuality — crushes and lust and love come easily enough, and I’ve never cared what anyone else thought of my choices whether they were critical of the personality or gender of my chosen partner — it’s moving through the world with a particular set of gender expectations applied to me that’s always made me uncomfortable,” Grayson said. “It’s not that I’m a tomboy — I have a lot of very traditionally feminine traits and behaviors, but I also have several that are classically ascribed to males, and finding a way to make the world accept any kind of range or fluidity in your nature seems astonishingly difficult." -Devin Grayson

“At some point in my teens, my dad walked in on me kissing a girl on the living room couch, and he called me downstairs for a ‘private discussion’ and seemed very upset, though I honestly had no idea why. He asked if we were ‘practicing,’ and I laughed and said something obnoxious like, ‘No, Dad, we’ve pretty much got it down,’ and I watched him just deflate. He had no idea what to say or do, and I think even realized that he wasn’t totally sure why he was mad. A few hours later he interrupted us again to yell at me about putting the cheese away wrong –not wrapping it up properly– and he was way more upset than one would need to be over refrigerator cheese etiquette, but eventually I learned how to wrap cheese up properly and he learned that it was just as uncomfortable for him when I kissed boys, so he might as well stay out of the whole thing." - Devin Grayson

"KILL OR BE KILLED is our take on the vigilante killer genre, which I hope means it's not what people usually expect when they think of that genre. It's NOT about a guy whose parents—or wife and kids—are killed by the mob and now he's out for revenge. No, it's not about a hero, even, really...it's about a (mostly) average guy who is suddenly thrust into a situation he can barely understand—where for reasons I don't want to spoil, he is forced to kill bad people. Forced to become judge and executioner. And the series is about how he adapts to this secret dilemma, and how he learns to become a killer and survive.

But more than that, it's also, you know: "If you had to kill a bad person, who would you pick?" Like, is there someone whose death would have a real impact on society for the better? How hard is it to find someone who truly deserves to die? And what does killing people do to you, mentally and physically? Can you hide this side of yourself from your friends and loved ones?"

"The second that you see a book like Hollywood Babylon when you’re a little kid — and I got a copy of that book when I was like 11 years old from a used bookstore — all of that stuff, and having that weird Hollywood connection of my uncle, I was always fascinated by that. You read celebrity bios and you see all these child actors and the crap that they went through, all the drugs and sex. I was attracted to that, and it’s part of the whole thing: What will you do for your dreams? It’s what we sacrifice for this mystical thing, fame and fortune, that you think is going to change your life somehow and change who you are."
