#LGBTQFilmmakers - DFG Series

This Thunderclap is supporting LGBTQ Filmmakers. We are calling for more funding and more diverse LGBTQ-led stories from mainstream broadcasters and funding bodies. The Oscar won by Moonlight, directed by Barry Jenkins was the first every LGBTQ winner of this award at the Oscars, lets hope this is the first of many. The aim of the Thunderclap is to rasie the issue of how hard it is to get funding for LGBTQ filmmaking.

A lesbian-led drama makes an appearance, on average, every five years or so. We bask in the reflected glory of The L Word, Lip Service, Sugar Rush and Sarah Waters’ adaptations. But the most recent, the seminal Lip Service, was last seen on our screens in 2012. In the US, there are more lesbian characters in mainstream media but they tend to killed off at regular intervals.

We believe that LGBTQ writers, producers and directors are in pole position to create LGBTQ stories but we need funding sources to be able to develop and produce dramas for both broadcast television, film distribution and web broadcast.

DIFFERENT FOR GIRLS is a web drama series featuring a group of lesbian, bisexual women and gay men whose lives and loves revolve around children, marriage, betrayal and divorce. That is not to say that there isn’t room for drink, drugs, sex and dancing. There is. Just not in front of their partners and children. Set in Chiswick, the women are the real lesbian housewives of West London!

The web is where LGBT dramas for LGBT audiences are beginning to thrive, and we turn to the web to find drama that speaks to our experiences. Lesbian audiences are especially loyal and seek out their stories, especially when these stories feature their favourite lesbian and bisexual icons.

HELP US - make this series a massive success.
