Stretching across the world from Chicago to Singapore, the characters in these stories contain multitudes. From a Brooklyn lesbian’s unorthodox journey to motherhood, to a bisexual woman’s longing to be understood and taken seriously in pursuit of love, to a California gay man’s journey of self-acceptance, this showcase is a deep dive into how characters navigate the intersections of their own identities and boldly live their truths.
