Two Queer Actors Required for Pilot Episode of Strapped In (AFTRS)
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

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.

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.
