Kathleen Rose Perkins to Play Lesbian on 'American Horror Story'

FX’s creepy new show American Horror Story has been getting a lot of buzz, and now creator Ryan Murphy & Co. have announced that the show is getting a lesbian best friend type of character played by Kathleen Rose Perkins. It’s not surprising that the man who gave us Joely Richardson and Portia de Rossi as a couple on Nip / Tuck and Naya Rivera as a bitch lesbian Cheerio on Glee would add a lesbian character to the roster at American Horror Story, but with so few lez characters on Primetime it’s a welcomed addition.
