At TheDigitalHash, we are always on the lookout for a web film or series that handles an ultra-relevant topic in a fun, irreverent tone. That is the bone of contention we have with many Indian short-film makers. They decide to handle serious issues but forget to add the entertainment factor in it.
That’s where the Hollywood contenders conquer the field. If you ever doubted if a serious issue could be handled in a fun, entertaining way, take a look at the 3 minute teaser of ADVOCATES, a web series by Curve that takes a quirky look at the LGBTQ rights scene at the moment.
The satire series celebrates everything that the LGBTQ community undergoes today, right from stupid sounding acronyms to straight people win awards that are targeted towards gay. For example, they just added an i to the LGBTQ. Isn’t that just 20 letters less than the entire alphabet? All this humor is not lost on the creators of ADVOCATE. Their characters are members of GULPTAB, the most powerful LGBTQ institution in America.
