"Scrutinze is an important word. It's my word. I invented it. It means you watch out for yourself. Watch your own back. Watch your own front too. In fact, watch all your own risks. Scrutinize the HIV facts. Scrutinize your own way to stay safe and protect yourself as well as others. Why do I do this voice? Because if we all don't start Scrutinizing, we're all screwed."

"You may be surprised but fame is no protection from this virus. We all need to Scrutinize to stay safe. When they asked me to be in the cast, it took me about one second to say yes. It's a fabulous campaign and working with Joey made it so much fun to play myself.”

"We've all seen Booza shibobo someone's style. With HIV around, drunken decisions can have devastating consequences. It's great to have the chance to create a character people can relate to. This Queen is tough AND smart. And she loves to Scrutinize."
