Felicia "Snoop" Pearson

Actor/author/rapper Felicia "Snoop" Pearson is known for her role in the HBO series The Wire as a character named after herself. As the final season of the show was about to air in 2008, she told The Advocate that she hoped she changed the face of gay characters on television. "I hope I broke the mold for my gay people," she said. "Just let 'em know; you don't have to hide it. People are gonna accept it or they gonna reject it. So what?"
