ABOUT

Subverting that sweet, sweet Hollywood trope of straight actors playing queer roles, THE WALK-IN CLOSET features a colourful cast of Montreal’s funniest comedians and actors who are all part of our LGBTQIA+ family! This series is sure to be the straightest thing you see all year - after your Uncle in Tevas ⓡ with socks.
 
As a small, self-funded passion project, THE WALK-IN CLOSET is an opportunity to further the careers of a diverse group of emerging Montreal talent: female, non-binary, and trans performers, filmmakers, and comedians. The show is fun and campy in its content, but political in its creative process. With two lesbian writers, this series provides a specific voice that we have seen so rarely be allowed to speak for itself. With this show we are working to transform the male gaze into a queer, femme one.
