(demonic voice sounds) Oh my god Hey! We are THESE THEMS I'm Gretchen -- I'm Esco I'm Kevin -- I'm Sawer So, THESE THEMS follows us It's a web series! We are four Queer people in the community a newly-out maybe lesbian a non-binary character a Trans man - and a really gay guy Hey! I'm Gretchen Wylder I am the creator and writer of THESE THEMS The reason I wanted to write this show is because nothing like it exists. Queer audiences can appreciate it because They're seeing themselves represented. Sometimes for the first time - especially in a funny way. Also, I wanted to make it for straight audiences So they can see characters That they can empathize with And really relate to if they don't happen to know a Trans person Or they don't happen to know someone who's non-binary I play Gretchen, who befriends Vero, who is Non-Binary (off-camera:) The lighting really lights you up Lights my black ass up I am Esco Jouley I will be playing the role of Vero Doing this project is important to me because it's how I identify as a person. And so other people know - I can be who I am. I can be accepted. It's also important to me for other people to see themselves represented on TV. I mean, who do you see? Me now. We have Ford. I'm Sawyer DeVuyst, I will be playing Ford. He's a Transgender man who is stealth Which means that nobody knows that he's Trans. So, this project looked so appealing to me because it was a comedy and every role that I go out for is either a drama or there's some sort of transition related storyline or Trans people are made out to be victims. And everything is just glum. And if I didn't have comedy in my life then I wouldn't be alive right now. We have Kevin, who is gay. (off camera) Wanna hold a crystal? Do I?! Does it sparkle though? Hi, I'm Kevin Zak. I play Kevin. A gay man in his early to mid late twenties. I'm doing this project because I think Giving a voice to all types of people is a good thing. And visibility matters. This afro is gonna teach this redhead a whole bunch of things about the real world. "Is that where you keep your secrets?" That's where I keep my secrets and my weapons. And also little babies. King cake! Hi I'm Tobly McSmith and I am a Trans man. I'm the director of ... theys/thems? THESE THEMS! These Thems. I'm so excited about this because when I read the script, I saw my friends in it. and I saw myself in it. And it was funny and touching. I think that more people need to see the Queer community like this. Just kind of living.
