It’s a story of true and unconventional love. It’s a story about breaking out of shackles by bringing taboos to light. It’s a story about a radical magazine, a movement and a defining moment in Australian lesbian history.

We need your help to make the first two episodes!

Our eight-episode web series followed 19-year-old Lisa who moves to Sydney in the late 1980s with a burning desire to express herself creatively. She falls hard for her flatmate Francine, and their shared interest in kink leads to publishing Australia’s first Lesbian erotica magazine. However, giving female sexuality an expression comes at a price, as these two pioneers struggle to not lose their personal truth amidst the fantasy.

The first $10,000 donated will be matched by Creative Partnerships Australia’s MATCH Lab program!
Please make a tax deductible donation today!

Why donate?

1. This inspirational Australian story celebrates Lisa and Francine, (who later transitions to Jasper), LGBTIQ+ pioneers who created a cultural movement in their fight for sexual liberation and gender expression.

2. This is an urgent step to finish raising the finance for the first two episodes. This will showcase the high-quality production of the series to film funding bodies and sponsors, so we can create the remaining six episodes of season 1.

3. The first $10,000 donated will be matched by Creative Partnerships Australia’s MATCH Lab program!

What’s the money for?

Thanks to Queer Screen and CPA, we’ve raised 45% of our budget, but we need your help to achieve 100%

Our costs include hiring cameras and lights, paying our cast and crew, production and costume design, insurance, COVID-safe management, locations, post-production costs like editing, sound mix, music rights and colour grading.

We can do this for $45,000 by being lean and creative.

We will be shooting in early 2021, and premiering the first episode at Sydney Mardi Gras Film Festival in September!

Who’s on the team?

Our crew includes Writer / Director Kate Lefoe, Producer Hayley Adams, writing team Grant Scicluna, Gina Lambropoulos, Oliver Ross, with the collaboration of the real life protagonists Jasper and Lisa. We are being mentored by Director Julie Kalceff (Starting from Now, ABC’s First Day).

Our supporting partners are Highway Casting and Lighthouse Rentals.
