This is a project that I made with some friends last summer. I thought it would be funny if there was a lesbian town hall with chapters across the US, meeting monthly to go over extremely banal issues facing the lesbian community, but treating said issues with the utmost seriousness.
We had SO much fun making it, but, as anyone who’s ever tried to make a collaborative project knows, it’s really hard to get a bunch of people in the same place at the same time to work outside of their job, no matter how jazzed about the idea they may be. One day if I get to be one of those ridiculous LA people whose jobs all seem to mostly be “hangin’ out and havin’ fun,” this will be the first project I return to. Zoe did some pretty incredible design work for it, and I’d hate for that to go to waste.
This also made me realize two things: 1, there is an accidental through-line in my work having to do with bizarre community channel television shows where I play a neurotic and controlling main character, and 2, this particular character is a combination of anyone I’ve disliked who’s ever been in charge of me (teachers, bosses, etc). DON’T TELL ME WHAT TO DO!
