OUT (An LGBT Short Film) -

Chrissy is so gay she's about to explode out of the closet. Along the way maybe she'll even find the courage to talk to that most mesmerizing and terrifying of creatures: a cute girl.

CHECK OUT MY NEW SHORT FILM "The Lavender Menace" (LGBT Spy/James Bond Parody!!)

CREATOR'S NOTE: Wait, wait, there's been a misunderstanding! Several commenters have criticized that this film endorses common lesbian stereotypes, which was never my intention. I've responded to a few of these criticisms in the comments, but I wanted to clarify my message here too. There is no "right" way to be a lesbian (or a bi/pan/queer woman for that matter), and at the end of the day stereotypes don't mean anything at all. Chrissy is a lesbian who's just coming out, so she tries out all these stereotypes because stereotypes are all she really knows about being gay. As a bi woman, I went through much the same process as Chrissy does when I was first discovering myself; I overshot it with the short hair and the flannels and the rainbows because I thought that was the "proper" way to be openly queer. Over time, though, I realized that you can just be *you* - however butch or femme that happens to be - and still be an 110 percent valid queer woman. I hoped to represent that idea with Chrissy's love interest Lola, a super feminine girl who you'd never guess was gay at first glance but who is totally comfortable with her sexuality. Lola shows Chrissy that it doesn't matter how a lesbian presents herself. If you're a girl who likes girls, you're already part of the club. And it's a pretty awesome club. Just saying.
