Do I Sound Gay (2014)
“A playful, heartfelt investigation” — Time

This is a comedy-drama that follows the stories of two transgender sex workers, Sin-Dee and Alexandra. Rella finds out that her boyfriend who is also her pimp is cheating on her and Alexandra sings at a bar where she pays to play.
“All Alexandra wants to do, her dreams, her aspirations, are just to get out there and be seen and heard. She’s an artist at heart. She’s an entertainer at heart. She is a transgender woman of color sex worker with so little opportunity due to discrimination and oppression, but she’s still working her hardest just to get her art out there. That was something that was more just a narrative device that I thought really encapsulated her struggle,” the director explained.
Oliver is a young man making his way through life and trying to build a relationship with a woman.

This teen flick follows the experiences of a group of teenagers at Camp Ovation, a summer theater camp. The group is diversified, from the gay and the overweight, to the nerds and the genderqueer. Things start to become weird when a straight popular boy joins them.
“It had universal themes of feeling like an outsider, finding a community, acceptance, people who are questioning their sexuality, dealing with body issues. That was relatable on the macro level. And then on the micro level, it got all the musical theater details right, so the people it was really about bought into it as well,” the director said.
