Robinson was born in San Francisco, California and later grew up in Los Angeles. Robinson attended Brown University where she majored in theatre and later received an MFA from New York University.
Robinson frequently deals with gay and lesbian topics in her films. Robinson has directed an award winning short film D.E.B.S. (2003) produced by POWER UP and a feature length film D.E.B.S. (2004). In the feature length film, Robinson centers the film around the young lesbian relationship of characters Amy and Lucy. In the undercover spy film, several of the teenage girls depicted are either lesbian or bisexual, and those sexual orientations are central to the film. Amy, played by actress Sara Foster, is the pride and joy of her all-female teenage spy school, because she is the first ever to achieve the perfect score in the secret spy test hidden in her SATs. Her sweet demeanor catches the attention of bad girl Lucy Diamond, played by Jordana Brewster, who sets her sights on seducing Amy while striving for world domination. Although some feared that producers would pressure Robinson into downplaying the lesbian aspects of the film, Robinson later indicated that she received full support, and that the lesbian relationship between Amy and Lucy remained intact. Robinson said "If anything, we worked together on the script to make the relationship more complex and intimate".

The complete and groundbreaking The L Word is now out on DVD and this book makes the perfect companion, covering the series in its entirety. Loving The L Word picks up where Reading The L Word: Outing Contemporary Television (I.B. Tauris, 2006) left off. With new, updated chapters by many of the same television writers and scholars who contributed to the first volume, as well as essays by some newcomers, Loving The L Word explores the series' quantum contribution to the ongoing evolution of queer television.
Whether you loved The L Word, hated it, or loved to hate it, this book recognizes that the show transformed the post-Ellen LGBT television landscape, fulfilling a long-neglected, visceral desire for lesbian stories and images. In the process, it reshaped the communities that follow and talk about queer television and care about the narratives and characters that drive it. Including complete Character/Actor, Film/TV and Episode guides, the book also proceeds from the understanding that while The L Word ended in 2009 it manages to live on—in the lives of its fans, as well as in a new reality spin-off, The Real L Word.
