Director's Statement

At a time where I didn’t recognize my hometown, Oakland I wrote QUEERLING as a response to a time where I questioned if I am truly in control of my own identity or am I inheriting identities from those around me. I struggled to grow comfortable in my own skin, facing the fear of blending in with new coworkers. I found myself trying to compensate for my blackness, queerness and lack of professionalism. Each episode is based on a situation that made me choose between what I’ve been raised to believe, what I know in my heart, and what will keep me financially stable. My hope is that this series relates to all the POC Queers who have to face these same questions.
