Upcoming Season One AQUEERD Episode Themes:
We are planning for a 6-Episode Season One for AQUEERD to begin exploring LGBTQIA experiences in the nonprofit sector and workplace. Each episode will function like a highly-edited clip-show, allowing a variety of individuals to share their stories in direct-to-camera short, expressive vignettes that are edited in collective themes per episode:
In The Closet at Work - Stories of choosing to or having to be in the closet at work and around co-workers.
Out But Not Welcome to be Proud at Work - Stories of being out at work, but it not being a very welcoming place or still not feeling comfortable in the office or around co-workers.
Out and Proud at Work - Stories of being out at work, and it’s welcomed or celebrated by the organization and/or co-workers.
Pardon Me? - Stories of LGBTQIA workplace experiences that were weird, awkward, or funny.
I’m Not Ok, You’re Not Ok - Stories of LGBTQIA workplace experiences that got weird, bad, scary, dangerous, and/or did or should have been an HR issue.
Let Me Give You Some Advice, Friend - Tips, advice, and stories of things you wish more people knew about being LGBTQIA in the workplace.
