Things We Saw Today: Stay Here Is Exactly the Kind of Nuanced LGBTQIA Content We All Crave

STAY HERE – Short Film from Lauren Schacher on Vimeo.

A short film that centers a queer woman of color with an all-female cast and an all-female creative team? Sign me up! Stay Here, which you can watch above, is a nuanced, intriguing portrayal of the relationship between two women struggling in the aftermath of infidelity, but the drama doesn’t come from where you think it will. Directed by Lauren Schacher, written by Jess Nurse, and starring Nurse alongside Mel Recker and Davie-Blue, this film festival favorite will have you wishing for a feature-length version.

You NEED to read this full Twitter thread from comics creator Alex de Campi on the Big Two and inclusion. Favorite line: “Why do they keep doubling down on their shrinking legacy audience of 40-something white guys? More and more stunts to fight for Chad’s dollar.”

That’s it on our end! What have you seen out there today?
