Over the next couple of weeks I’m hoping to update the site with all the latest f/f related web series, short films and funding campaigns I can find. I haven’t been actively on-line all that much over the last six months so there are no doubt countless wonderful shows that I’ve never even heard about; so if you know about a web series, short film or funding campaign featuring lesbian or bisexual female characters that you think should be included on the site let me know in a reply to this post.
With your help I hope to once again turn this site into a useful resource for those of us endlessly searching for decent representation on screen and an escape from the bloodbath normal television has become.
Welcome to “Couple-ish”, a new queer webseries filming in Toronto, ON. We are a group of filmmakers, writers, and actors who are passionate about bringing new voices and new representation to LGBTQ+ audiences that don’t usually see it. “Couple-ish” is queer media with a fake couple, but real heart.
“Couple-ish” is about Dee, a bisexual, non-binary Canadian illustrator, who finds themself locked into a lease they can’t afford. With the help of younger sister Amy, Dee thinks they find the perfect new roommate in Rachel, a queer British bartender. Things go awry in this character-driven comedy when, eight months later, Rachel claims Dee as a common-law partner to stop herself from being deported. When Amy, who is developing a crush on her sibling’s roommate, begs Dee to go with the plan, the group sets up a YouTube channel to prove Rachel and Dee are totally in love—and totally not just faking it for the government.
The series will be shot in both vlog and standard formats, and will combine trans-media elements through a character-run Tumblr. With 22 planned episodes, “Couple-ish” will have over two full hours of scripted material for your viewing pleasure.
Please take a look around, meet the team, see the perks, and hopefully we’ll see you soon…ish!
The latest Netflix original show is a treat for all lovers of quality dramas with a diverse cast of characters and locations, just crying out for more LGBTQ representation. The above trailer is a little misleading as it looks like it’s focused on the pretty white boy but it’s actually very much of an ensemble. That said, the lesbian characters are amazing, and with it not being network TV they actually get to show their affection in a realistic way.
Ever since its publication, readers have fallen in love with the hilarious and heart-warming story of the March family.

A vibrant, fun, and modern reimagining of the classic coming of age novel ‘Little Women’.
