'Strapped-In' is a ten minute pilot/proof of concept episode for a web-series we are developing as our Grad Project at AFTRS. It is a slice-of-life, comedy/drama series with a perspective that shifts between three trans identifying protagonists, Tee, Tony and Kaiya. It grapples with how they deal with the micro-aggressions they face, broader tragedy in their community while coming into their own as people in their twenties.

Episode Synopsis:
Tony, a young trans man, is finally comfortable enough in his body to be dating all the beautiful boys he's ever dreamed of - and that he is doing! Him and Chris have been together for a few months now, but there's a problem - Tony hates the sex.

Inspired by his housemate Tee, Tony decides to buy a strap-on called Wilson, hoping it will fulfil his wildest fantasies. However, upon bringing it up with Chris, Tony is met with viscious backlash. The two argue, guided by the internalised homophobia and transphobia they didn't realise they had, finally leaving Tony to deal with the weight of heartbreak and what this means for his evolving gender identity

Job payment

This job is unpaid


Chris

He/Him pronouns, mid-twenties, bisexual, cisgender man

Chris is a sincere, stoic kind of man - the type who would take you on a date to a coffee shop/bookstore hybrid and talk about the Feminist literature that blew his mind in uni. He's patient and having dated people of a variety of genders believes that he is an understanding partner. However, Chris finds it easy to ignore his privilege as a straight-passing man who has never had the validity of his masculinity questioned.

Males, aged 18 to 25 from New South Wales, Australia

Tee

They/Them pronouns, early-mid twenties, assigned female at birth, identifies as genderqueer, polyamorous and pansexual - please only apply if you are trans-identifying

Tee is an unapologetic, loudly queer punk. They strive to live and present themselves as a 'f* you' to social norms, good taste, capitalism and the gender binary. They are extremely sex and body positive and live a sporadic lifestyle. Can come off as intimidating but cares fiercely for their friends and political ideals.
