There are so many moments of queer victory and joy in our everyday lives and they are worth celebrating. With this web series, my intention is to bring to life these otherwise unnoticeable magic moments. We all face hard times and we know despair and depression too well, so it’s worth cherishing the moments when we finally rise from it all. I took inspiration from my life and from the lives of those who inspire me - my friends. My hope is that these fragments will uplift all of us when we need it most.

Episodes

EPISODE COMPLETED

The moment when you call your mum with good news.

Connor calls his mum to tell her about a great guy he’s met recently.

EPISODE COMPLETED
The moment you’re a successful writer and you’ve paid off all your debt.

A writer calls to make the final payment to her creditors. To her surprise, the woman she’s speaking to on the phone offers her encouragement and comfort.

 
The moment when you have a choice between de-escalation and panic.

Johnny arrives home to find Tom in distress. The screen splits and two stories unfold: In one half of the screen, Johnny doesn’t say anything and is there for Tom. In the other half of the screen, Johnny panics and compels Tom to tell him what’s wrong.

The micro short focuses on teaching its audience about the seven de-escalation strategies which enable a better conflict resolution: act calm, respect boundaries, give the option to discuss now or later, listen, change perspective, invite to join in a calming activity and give space and time.
