Three short descriptions of you: Screenwriter, Script Supervisor, Swiftie

I came out during LGBTQ+ History Month when I was 20 years old. My frame of reference for what it meant to be queer was virtually non-existent growing up, and between the pride flags and LGBTQ+ film screenings, I found myself surrounded by positive queer representation for the first time.
Since coming out I’ve found joy in learning about LGBTQ+ people throughout history… but also sadness that there was so much I didn’t know. As a lesbian and a storyteller I want to challenge this, and I’m always working towards bringing more authentic LGBTQ+ stories to the screen to counter the lack of representation that I had growing up. Wales has so much LGBTQ+ history and so many talented LGBTQ+ creatives, and I’m so proud and excited to be a part of the Pink Portraits Revisited – I can’t wait to see what the future brings!
