About

Queer Confessions

Project 2020-08-04 13:07:22 +1200

"Queer Confessions" is the pilot of our documentary web series made by rainbow people, for rainbow people. Let's face it. LGBTQI+ representation within media is abysmal. Often only being portrayed through a narrow lens of thin, white, cisgender gay Men, it leaves many rainbow individuals feeling under represented. "Queer Confessions" bridges this gap, interviewing a range of queer people, showcasing the true diversity of the queer community. With the overarching theme of 'We're not there yet' in regard to identity-based exclusion, each episode will be focussing on a different aspect of New Zealand's acceptance towards rainbow individuals. For example, queer homeless youth; LGBT rights in healthcare, etc.

 

Where's your money going?

Your donations will go towards getting this web series off the ground! It will fund catering for the shoots, travel to for the crew, and submitting to festivals, just to name a few.

 

Complete cost breakdown:

- Film festival submission fees

- Licensing archival material

- Kai for the shoot

- Travel costs

- Small gifts for interviewees

- Gifts for the donors

- Contingency money

All money raised above our target will go towards future episodes of the series.

 

Who the heck are we?

Besides browsing through the web to find her next pair of sneakers to cop, Ann can be found digging through her producer notebook to assess what tasks are needed to be done. She’s a 3rd year communication student looking into majoring in Television Screen and minoring in Digital Media. Ann is passionate about creating important content.
