LaTajh Weaver is an emerging writer and director born and raised in Oakland, CA. She is dedicated to reclaiming and telling authentic stories of LGBTQIA and Black communities. One of LaTajh’s previous projects, the web series CYCLES, follows a youth advocate worker and a young gang member as they search for their purpose amid danger in Oakland, where the murder rate remains the second highest in the country. After successfully raising $20K for production, CYCLES was selected to screen at over ten film festivals. In early 2019, after directing a short film reflecting on her experience as a black woman growing up in America, she was chosen for a National Queer Arts grant. Most recently, LaTajh was selected for a Las Vegas Writing Downtown Residency to commence work on her latest screenplay, PIPELINE. She has also been commissioned to direct a series of short films for the SF Foundation, Prisoner Support Committee, Black Girls Code and The Asian Law Caucus.
