Different For Girls is coming soon and they’ve just dropped this steamy new trailer.

Starring a host of talented actresses – Rachel Shelley (The L Word), Sophie Ward (Land Girls, Doctors), Heather Peace (Lip Service), Janet Ellis (Doctor Who), Amy Lamé (RuPaul’s Drag Race, Loose Women), Guinevere Turner (The L Word and Go Fish), Nimmy March (Wallander, Thin Ice) among others – the web series is about the lives and betrayals of a group of queer women living in London.

The series creator, BAFTA award-winning producer Jacqui Lawrence, discussed the importance of the show to our community,

Television has been found guilty of murder in the first degree. But it’s never been charged. The victims have one thing in common. They are all lesbians. Television is literally getting away with murder. Different For Girls is here to save the fate of fictional lesbians. Different For Girls is a web drama series but you can rest assured that no lesbian will be killed or harmed during it’s making. Not unless one of them dies from too much love, lust and laughter.”

Different For Girls is an adaptation of Lawrence’s fiction novel of the same name –  first published as an e-book in 2014, and then as a paperback in 2015.

It’s easy to be glib about this but in reality the constant ‘disposal’ of lesbian characters has an acute impact on younger viewers who are struggling with their sexuality…

We are desperate to see lesbian and bi characters that manage to live their dramatic and complicated lives, on screen, without fear of death by car, helicopter crash, house fire or stray bullet. Different For Girls is here to save the fate of lesbians and bisexual from what has become known as the Dead Lesbian Syndrome.”
