Discover the Queeroes short film series, part of an innovative new mentorship from 5050by2020 (an initiative of Time’s Up) and them (a queer non-binary digital platform of Conde Nast) that elevates queer, trans, and POC storytelling. Curated by Emmy-award winner Jill Soloway, participating mentors include Emmy-award winning writer Lena Waithe (“The Chi”) and playwright and TV writer Tanya Saracho (“Vida”). The films include a re-imagining of the classic Broadway movie musical with a Black butch lesbian dancer in the starring role, a sassy post-gender Hollywood landscape set in the near future, and a rowdy high school comedy through a genderfluid Latinx lens.
Followed By: An extended discussion with the cast and crew of each film.
