Metro Sexual

An Australian comedy series starring comedian Geraldine Hickey and Riley Nottingham. Shot  in a mockumentary style, the series follows the lives of doctors Stephanie Huddleston and Langdon Marsh, who work at Metropolitan Sexual Health, while also juggling friendships, relationships with colleagues, and their love lives. 

The Visit

The upcoming slate will be featured in a branded Pride Month playlist on the We Are Pride YouTube  channel throughout June. 

‘Lesflicks is  at the forefront of lesbian storytelling, bringing honest and absorbing stories of sapphic love to the screen,’ said Hannah Barnes, We Are Pride Director of Unscripted and Original Production. ‘We are really pleased to be deepening our partnership with Naomi and the team at Lesflicks to license a raft of acclaimed content for the We Are Pride YouTube channel as we celebrate Pride Month this June and beyond. 

‘Lesbian content is our most popular content on We Are Pride. Audiences are craving authenticity  and representation in the content they watch and we anticipate our partnership with Lesflicks will  only continue to grow with the demand for these films and series.’

‘Everyone deserves to see themselves on  screen and authentic lesbian & bisexual stories offer hope to those discovering their true selves as  part of their coming out,’ said Naomi Bennett, Lesflicks Founder and CEO.

‘Lesflicks proudly champions under-represented voices and showcases  authentic sapphic stories otherwise overlooked by mainstream distributors,’ said Bennett. ‘We work with independent filmmakers and share their stories because they matter, and not just in Pride Month because as a lesbian-owned business we know that our audiences are queer all year, not just in June!’

‘A minimum of 11 million women worldwide don’t identify as heterosexual, and that number only  grows year on year,’ said Bennett. ‘Together with the We Are Pride YouTube channel, we’re going to celebrate  those women and their stories this Pride Month and beyond.’

New Lesflicks content will premiere on the We Are Pride YouTube channel throughout June in celebration of 2024 LGBTQIA+ Pride Month.
