Zoe Lister-Jones Comes Out As Queer After Divorce News

Zoe Lister-Jones came out as queer post-divorce from Daryl Wein.

Zoe Lister-Jones recently came out as queer following her divorce from artist and filmmaker Daryl Wein, to whom she was married from 2013 to 2022. At the Spirit Awards, Lister-Jones shared her new romance with filmmaker Sammi Cohen, expressing her feelings and embracing her identity.

During the event, Lister-Jones highlighted the importance of gender-neutral acting categories, praising Film Independent for their pioneering efforts in this area. She emphasized the need for award shows to follow suit and eliminate gender distinctions in categories to promote inclusivity and diversity in the industry.

Discussing her relationship with Cohen, Lister-Jones commended their talent as a filmmaker, citing Cohen's work on projects like Netflix's 'You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah' and Hulu's 'Crush.' She emphasized the significance of supporting nonbinary voices and filmmakers, advocating for a broader shift in the industry to create more opportunities for underrepresented voices.

As a nominee at the Spirit Awards for her series 'Slip,' where she served as creator, co-executive producer, and actor, Lister-Jones expressed gratitude for the recognition and the platform to showcase independent and boundary-pushing work. She highlighted the event's celebration of independence of spirit and defiance of traditional categorizations, aligning with her personal and professional values.

Outside of the awards season, Lister-Jones has been an advocate for LGBTQ+ rights, celebrating Pride Month with a post on social media last June. Her openness about her identity and relationships reflects a commitment to authenticity and visibility within the entertainment industry.
