and they both currently play queer characters

By the way, if you loved All for One and Couple-ish, make sure to check out @cyclesixtysix, an independent webseries production company by @ai-firestarter, co-writer for both of those. They’ve got two projects out right now:

The Soliloquies of Santiago, a LIW adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello, told from the point of view of Jacob Santiago, a college student graduating in theatre and desperate to get the role he wants. It’s got great writing, breathtaking acting, a super racially diverse cast and plenty of queer characters, including (but not limited to) a trans character played by AN ACTUAL TRANS PERSON. It’s just all around amazing and i love it so so much.

Dorian Gray, a supernatural LIW adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray. Currently existing only in trailer form, it’s been submited to the IPF for funding, so if you enjoy it, make sure to like, comment, and share EVERYWHERE and with EVERYONE. It’s looking fantastic this far and it needs your help in getting produced!

CARMILLA

Recommended viewing here, friends!

Carmilla is loosely based on the original story by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, but is sort of like a college!AU of it set in a university that would not feel out of place in Night Vale. It’s a tale of sacrifice, love, friendship, growth, and change. It’s delightful.

Pros: the vast majority of the cast is women and queer women at that. One of the main four characters is a non binary person (!!!) and another is canonically Jewish. The non binary character is played by an actor who is currently questioning their gender and both Laura and Carmilla are played by queer women (dunno about the other characters). Characters are well rounded and real and the dialogue is engaging and witty.

Cons: the cast is very white.

Pro: that is addressed here. I am hopeful that they will do the right thing.
