When Hen was 9, her father «abandoned her.»  Her mother is still alive at least when she quits her pharma rep job and decides to become a paramedic.
When Hen was 16, she was accidentally shot. The bullet wasn’t meant for her. The bullet ruptured her kidney and grazed her aorta. Luckily, the paramedics took great care of her and Hen survived. Hen tells Taylor Kelly in «Dosed» that following this, she decided that she wanted to be a paramedic like those who saved her so that she could save other people who were in her situation.  The episode «Hen Begins» shows more details of her path to become a paramedic.
Hen was a lifeguard one summer when she was a kid.
She has mentioned having multiple jobs, including a stint as a lifeguard during the summer holidays when she was a student. Prior to joining the LAFD she worked for a pharmaceutical company as a sales representative. She quits after «the meltdown of ’08,» which likely means that she joined around 2009.
In the show, she is the only first responder that is openly gay or lesbian. In the episode «Point Of Origin», her wife, Karen, is shown for the first time.
She introduces herself as Henrietta to Captain Gerrard when she first joins the 118, but is quickly nicknamed Hen.
Hen is currently married to Karen Wilson. Her ex, Eva is in prison at the start of season 1 and asks Hen for help for her parole, which Hen refuses. She was Hen’s first great love and they lived together, as seen in «Hen Begins.» Eva eventually got out of prison without Hen’s help and began working in a tax firm until her overdose in «Awful People».
Hen saved a dog named Paisley in the episode «7.1» and is seen giving the dog to her son in the episode «Help Is Not Coming.»
Hen cheated on on her wife with Eva in «Full Moon (Creepy AF).» Eva tried to regain custody of Denny on the grounds that she is his biological mother and claimed that Hen cheating on Karen made their household unsuitable for Denny to live in. Karen learned about Hen infidelity when receiving the papers from Eva, and decided to take Denny to live with her parents, leaving Hen.
Eva signed away all rights when Denny was born but we learn in «Awful People» that his biological father, Nathaniel Greene, did not. Although Eva claimed that Nathan was going to petition for parental rights, her overdose sent her back to jail and Nathaniel decided not to peruse parental rights.
In «This Life We Choose» (S02E18), it is shown that Karen and Hen were already a couple before welcoming Denny into their life, and they hoped to have additional children. Season three starts with the couple using IVF to have another child. Unfortunately, the treatment was unsuccessful.
Hen has a close relationship with «Chimney» Han. They call each other «best friend» on multiple occasions and often come to each others’ aid. When Hen first joined the 118, Chimney was the first to show her compassion and friendship. They later bonded over becoming paramedics and discrimination at work. Their friendship extended beyond work, as shown with Chimney’s health issues and through Hen’s relationship issues.
Athena coincidentally met Hen during an emergency incident, and the two quickly bonded, as they were both minority women in white, male dominated fields. Athena (known as ‘Thena to Hen) introduced Hen to other «misfits», a gay firefighter and a female policewoman. They became a support group of sorts, regularly meeting to commiserate their sometimes difficult occupations. Athena and Hen eventually become close friends, disclosing private details of their personal lives and often asking each other for advice.
Hen absolutely adores her wife Karen and their children. She momentarily doubts their relationship when she cheats on her wife with her ex (and Denny’s mother), Eva, but immediately regrets her actions. After that lapse in judgement, Hen learns to fully appreciate her wife and family, and dedicates herself to supporting them.
Hen is shown as caring, kind, and loyal. She has a big heart and is always ready to make sacrifices for others. Her cool and calm demeanor comes in handy especially when the crew have to deal with agitated victims.

West Village Description
Henrietta Hudson is located in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan. The western slice of Greenwich Village—although some will tell you it’s a separate neighborhood altogether; don’t listen to them—the West Village is a somewhat sleepier version of its larger neighborhood, with many tree-lined streets populated by residential buildings and punctuated ever-so-lightly with restaurants and bars. The locals have fought notoriously hard throughout the years to keep raucous bars and clubs from staying open—or even opening at all—to preserve the relative quiet of their neighborhood.
The West Village stretches east from the Hudson River to 6th Avenue, and north from Houston Street to West 14th. It’s northwestern corner is chewed off by the Meatpacking District, where the very sorts of restaurants and bars West Village residents try to keep out of their ‘hood flourish. The majority of Bleecker Street’s dining, shopping, and drinking options exist on the West Village’s end of the street, with a small shopping mecca surrounding the intersection of 7th Avenue, where many high-end retailers have stores, like Brooks Brothers’ Black Fleece, Comptoir des Cotonniers, Burberry, Marc Jacobs, and a whole lot more.
There’s plenty of history here, and the bars are no exception—Dylan Thomas famously stumbled out of the White Horse Tavern heavy with whiskey on the night he expired at the Hotel Chelsea. For those aiming to avoid the thumping, throbbing nightclubs of the Meatpacking District, jazz can be had at Fat Cat, the legendary Village Vanguard, and smaller, quieter establishments like 55 Bar. If you’d like a more structured day of drinking, the folks at the Literary Pub Crawl put on a fantastic and informative tour.
The sophisticated residents of the West Village have led a number of excellent restaurants to open in the neighborhood, from Italian favorite Sant Ambroeus, April Bloomfield’s game-changing gastropub The Spotted Pig, Yerba Buena, and Perry St.. Of course, if you’re not in the mood for high-end cuisine in mood-inducing settings, there’s pizza on offer at John’s of Bleecker Street, but you’d be better served by walking a little further east and feasting one our favorite New York slice at Joe’s. And if it’s a burger you’re looking for, the city’s first Umami Burger is lurking over on 6th Avenue, while perennial favorite Corner Bistro is on 7th.
While the West Village is low on museums, it has two of the best independent cinemas in the city between Film Forum and neighborhood landmark IFC Center.
Антонис (Антон, Энтони) ван Дейк (нидерл. Antoon van Dyck, английский вариант написания имени — Anthony, Энтони; 22 марта 1599 — 9 декабря 1641) — южнонидерландский (фламандский) живописец и график, мастер придворного портрета и религиозных сюжетов в стиле барокко.
Антонис ван Дейк родился 22 марта 1599 г. в Антверпене, в семье богатого торговца тканями Франса ван Дейка. Он был седьмым из двенадцати детей. В 1609 году в 10 — летнем возрасте его отдают в мастерскую известного живописца Хендрика ван Балена, писавшего картины на мифологические темы.
Первый шедевр Антонис написал, когда ему было 14 лет, — портрет 70 — летнего старика.
С 1615 г. у ван Дейка уже имелась собственная мастерская, где он вместе с рядом молодых художников создал серию «Головы апостолов».
К ранним его работам относится Автопортрет (ок. 1615, Вена, Музей истории искусств),
отличающийся изяществом и элегантностью.
В 1618—1620 создает цикл из 13 досок, изображающих Христа и апостолов: Св. Симон (ок. 1618, Лондон, частное собрание), Св. Матфей (ок. 1618, Лондон, частное собрание). Выразительные лица апостолов написаны в свободной живописной манере. Сейчас значительная часть досок этого цикла рассеяна по музеям всего мира.
В феврале 1618 года ван Дейк был принят мастером в гильдию живописцев Святого Луки и, уже имея собственную мастерскую, сотрудничает с Рубенсом, работает как помощник в его мастерской.
Ван Дейк рано проявил себя мастером портрета и живописи на религиозные и мифологические сюжеты.
С 1618 по 1620 гг. он работал в мастерской Рубенса. Он создает произведения на религиозные темы, часто в нескольких вариантах: «Коронование терновым венцом» (1621
1й берлинский вариант — не сохранился; 2й — Мадрид, Прадо); «Поцелуй Иуды» (ок. 1618—1620, 1й вариант — Мадрид, Прадо; 2й — Минеаполис, Институт искусств); «Несение креста» (ок. 1617—1618, Антверпен, Синт-Паулускерк); «Св. Мартин и нищие» (1620—1621, 1й вариант — Виндзорский замок, Королевское собрание; 2й вариант — Завентем, церковь Сан Мартен), «Мученичество св. Себастьяна» (1624—1625, Мюнхен, Старая Пинакотека).
В конце 1620 — начале 1621 г. ван Дейк работал при дворе английского короля Якова I, но затем вернулся в Антверпен. Некоторое время жил в Италии, в основном, в Генуе.
С 1621 — 1627 Ван Дейк живет и работает в Германии. В 1627 году ван Дейк вернулся в Антверпен и стал придворным художником Изабеллы Клары Евгении.
С 1632 г. живописец снова жил в Лондоне, работая придворным художником Карла I. В 1632 г. король посвятил его в рыцари, а в 1633 г. пожаловал ему статус королевского художника. Живописец получал солидное жалование. В Англии в 1639 году он женился на дочери лорда Рутвена Мэри Ратвен.
Ван Дейк скончался 9 декабря 1641 г. в Лондоне, погребен в Соборе святого Павла в Лондоне.

As Pride Month kicks off, New York lesbian bars emerge from pandemic woes
NEW YORK, June 3 (Reuters) — At Henrietta Hudson, one of New York City’s most iconic LGBTQ hangouts, co-owner Lisa Cannistraci had long mulled a makeover but put off tackling the changes while business was good.
Then COVID-19 hit. In March 2020, even before authorities ordered businesses to shut down, Cannistraci closed the bar and resolved to use the pause from the pandemic as a chance to transform the historic space in Manhattan's West Village.
Fifteen months later, Henrietta Hudson is welcoming patrons back to a club reimagined as a lounge with sitting areas and plates of charcuterie to accompany its dance floor.

The re-opening coincides with this month's LGBTQ Pride commemorations, which also are making a comeback across the United States as the coronavirus pandemic abates and vaccination rates rise.
In New York, a year after the city's massive Pride march was forced to go mostly virtual, some in-person events are once again planned for June 27, along with a string of online gatherings throughout the month.
"The community needs it now more than ever," said Cannistraci, surrounded by boxes and new furniture in the bar's dim light last week. "I just want to give them the best Pride that I can possibly do."
Henrietta Hudson, which catered mainly to the lesbian community when it first opened in 1991, this year was re-branded by its owners as a "Queer Human Bar Built by Lesbians" as part of an effort to reach younger LGBTQ people who defy sexual orientation and gender identity labels.
Cannistraci said she used all the tools at her disposal to preserve the business, including pandemic loans and contributions from the community.
But COVID-19 dealt a hard blow to the shrinking number of lesbian bars throughout the country, as well as the broader restaurant and nightclub industry.
About 90,000 eating and drinking venues remain closed, permanently or long-term, in the United States, according to a recent survey by the National Restaurant Association.
"This past year was really, really hard," said Lisa Menichino, the owner of Cubbyhole, another historic lesbian bar in the West Village.
The pandemic forced Cubbyhole to close last year for the first time in its 27-year history. Menichino said she wasn't sure the business would survive.
"I went into kind of a funk and stayed in my pajamas. Drank a lot of bourbon," she recalled during an interview.
Then she said she started getting messages from regulars and other customers who shared the milestones they had experienced at Cubbyhole — meeting their future spouse, coming out, someone's first kiss.
Those memories spurred Menichino into action. The bar set up a GoFundMe page and reached its $30,000 goal in less than 24 hours, a sum that would more than double in a year. The money helped keep the bar afloat, said Menichino, sitting at one of the outdoor tables installed beneath paper lanterns and white lights for safer gathering during the pandemic.
She said Cubbyhole also benefited from "The Lesbian Bar Project," a campaign born to support U.S. lesbian bars.
Erica Rose and Elina Street conceived the project over phone conversations in the early days of the pandemic, as they reminisced about their favorite LGBTQ hangouts in New York.
They said they were taken aback to discover how few lesbian bars remained — 21 across the country, by their count so far, down from roughly 200 in the 1980s.
Their project raised more than $117,000 during a campaign launched last fall, and the two filmmakers on Thursday are releasing a long-form documentary that dives into the bars' stories.
Myriad factors have put lesbian and queer bars at risk over the years, the filmmakers said. In some cases, gentrification has wiped out spaces that serve marginalized people, while in others queer women have faced extra financial challenges to keep bars running.
Broader societal acceptance of same-sex couples and marriage equality also have made it easier for gay couples to frequent non-LGBTQ places, they said.
Inclusivity of everyone in the LGBTQ community, including gender-nonconforming people, is key for struggling lesbian and queer spaces, Rose added.
"In order for lesbian bars and queer spaces in general to stay open, we need to be radically inclusive of (the) most vulnerable members of the LGBTQ community," she said.
With the return of in-person Pride gatherings, owners of some queer venues are looking with cautious optimism to a post-pandemic future.
“I’m excited, I’m nervous. I don’t want to expect too much,” said Cubbyhole’s Menichino. But, she added, “We will celebrate one way or the other.”

Dominated by a large pool table (always in use) in the center room and two bars, this divey bar hosts dancing many nights and seems especially popular among Latina and African-American women. See the website for special theme nights (Wednesdays is Salsa Night).
