Daily Show Interview
Moscow Watcher came to more widespread attention in 2014, when she was interviewed as part of a Daily Show segment on Russia's anti-gay legislation. Her comments were widely shared, as a video and as gifs. She notably quoted a line from Angel to explain why she was protesting against the laws.
I want to look at the eyes of my children and grandchildren and say that I did all I could. There’s a wonderful phrase from an American TV show called “Angel”, “if nothing we do matters, then all that matters is what we do.”
