FROM THE MOUTHS OF BABES

Stephanie Westwood

A comedy sketch series based on Instagram that explores mundane moments and micro-aggressions in the lives of the LGBTQ community.

Due to the fact that creating filmic stories is an expensive process, by and large the narratives that get told are for, and about, the mainstream. In the jostle for the spotlight, for funding and for opportunities, often only the most privileged get access. As a result, for a diverse community, our representations are far from it. 

The project aims to enable people who sit on several intersections of oppression to claim their representations by pitching short narratives. From there, a small team of predominantly queer folk will direct, shoot and edit the minisodes. 

I AM PREZ - SCRIPT DEVELOPMENT

Charles O'Grady

A full length work of political satire and escapism based on the premise that there exists an alternate universe in which Caitlyn Jenner became the next US president instead of Donald Trump.

Kardashians in the White House, Kanye in the West Wing, Mike Pence in drag, and a visit from the ghost of Sylvia Rivera. Trump is over, and it’s time to Make America Cait Again. #ImWithHair

The funding would be for the development of the play by trans playwright Charles O’Grady.

PRIDE IN CARE

 

Lara Gerrand

An advocacy, education and leadership organisation lead by same sex attracted and sex and gender diverse young people with an out of home care experience (that’s young people who have lived in foster care, residential care or kinship care).

Taking inspiration from the RISE program in the US, the group will develop leadership skills to educate workers and carers on how best to work with LGBTQI+ young people in care.
