“It was the first lesbian wedding to ever be shown on TV and they blocked it out in some affiliates”, explained Jane. 

She continued that “it all worked out as we got so much press because they blocked it. We actually won awards for that storyline!”. 

Jane accepted awards on behalf of the show for representing LGBTQ issues in the media. 

The pair were reunited for the first time since Friends finished back in 2004 at FriendsFest as they currently live on opposite sides of America.
