Seeking Bay Area queer, trans, and POC actors

I’ve just been accepted to the Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project’s Filmmaker training program and am getting ready to start pre-production for my third film! This short film is about a cis woman coming to terms with the news that her trans boyfriend is going to start taking hormones. Though initially she does not handle the news very well, she ultimately realizes that her love for her partner vastly outweighs her fear of what the future holds.

I will be shooting the film in the Bay Area in from mid-to-late March. Auditions will be in early March. I am looking for actors in their 20s who are queer, trans, and/or of color to fill the following roles:

Naima is a mixed-race woman with naturally big, curly hair. She loves Theo and tries to support him the best she can, but when Theo tells her he’s going to start taking hormones, she panics. She is fearful of the prejudice he will face, and how it may shape their life together.

Theo is pre-op/non-op trans guy (any race). He loves his partner, Naima, and when he “comes out” about starting hormones, he’s surprised by how upset she gets and begins to worry that transitioning might test the strength of their relationship.

Ray can be of any gender or race. Ray is the best friend that calls Naima out on her selfishness, which helps Naima see she was in the wrong and make amends with Theo.

I’ll be shooting the film in Oakland in the spring. If you’re interested or have questions, please hit me up at NMKCasting@gmail.com. Please share!

hotep4all:

It says “Baby Hiram” in reference to a one year old that was killed down the street from this location in West Oakland about a year ago. Toward the top of the picture it says “Know Justice, Know Peace.”
