The documentary will focus on three people – Sam, Louise and Kay – and give a close-up account of their trans* experience and both challenges and joys that have faced them. It looks as though the documentary has very much allowed the individuals taking part to lead the way on how to tell their stories, and the documentary has been strongly welcomed by TENI:
The Small Screen
Faking it’s protagonists are unpopular best friends, Amy and Karma, who find themselves transforming into the school’s most popular girls in a case of mistaken lesbian identity.
Shay Mitchell is an independent woman who fearlessly moved to Toronto at the age of 18 alone to pursue her dreams. Her acting aspirations lead her to the role of Emily on Pretty Little Liars and she has since embraced her lesbian character’s every single quality.
New web-series, Straight Up Gay, follows lesbian Alison and her straight male friend Brenden on the dating scene in New York City. A funny take on the increasingly popular concept of a straight man with a lesbian bestie, both fighting over women.
Could Glee star Lea Michele be making a guest appearance on the next season of HBO’s Looking? As best buds with Jonathon Groff, who stars in the show, Lea has said that she’d love to appear and being gay would be ok.

The BBC’s BAFTA winning drama about two elderly people who rekindle an old flame was a massive hit in the UK, now Diane Keaton plans to remake the show for a US audience.
So now that Once upon a Time seems to have an out female character, who else has Disney been trying to hide from us?
The gayest show on TV is back November 10th in Canada. So much loveliness to look forward to, I am counting the weeks. There is also the question of where your allegiances lie, are you Doccubus or Copubus?
Lately I’ve been obsessing about Netflix’s House of Cards. The serious is excellent, but Jesus on a stick, how does Robin Wright stay this gorgeous?
BBC 3 introduces Orphan Black, its import from sister channel BBC America, as “the series that has been making waves in the States”. Clone shows are hard to pull off, almost always airing on the side of naff but Orphan Black has something other shows do not; the outrageously talented Tatiana Maslany.
Crystal Chappell can’t seem to stop herself from making lesbian based web series and we love her for it. Beacon Hill is the latest installment from Open Book Productions following on from the success of Emmy Award winning Venice the Series which is currently airing it’s forth season.
At last the TV (laptop) is starting to look up, True Blood and Dexter can only keep a girl going for so long you know. Let’s have a look at some shows coming soon.
‘Buzzfeed.com’ was the first to rudely interrupt our basking in the post-OITNB-binge glow, by informing us that (according to sources close to the show) Prepon would not be a series regular in Season 2 . I
