“I wanted to create a story that could resonate with anyone; gay, straight, bi, doesn’t matter,” said Kate. “We all know what it’s like to date and find love. It’s messy and hard. Leslie is all of us. She just happens to like women.”
The first nine episodes are available to stream on the series’ YouTube Channel and the Season 1 Finale will air on Thursday 29 September at 7AM AEST.
