    Rudy the Red-Faced Courier

    Rudy joins an all-female delivery service during their busy Christmas period. She’s embarrassed to realise she’s slept with all her co-workers: Cupid, a hard-partying clit-hopper; Prancer, a closeted heiress; Dasher, an indecisive bisexual; Dancer and Donner, an overly-affectionate couple suffering from lesbian bed death; Comet, a questioning straight girl; Blitzen, a wise old lesbian who talks only in culturally appropriated clichés; and Vixen, a trans woman who isn’t allowed her own storyline. The team pulls together through personal drama and transport failures to ensure the children of Portland get their presents in time for Christmas.

    It’s A Wonderful Dyke

    A depressed lesbian considers ending it all. A guardian angel shows her visions of what the world would be like if she never existed: half the girls she hooked up with in college would be trapped in curiously unfulfilling marriages to straight dudes; the local organic food co-op would go bust without anyone to buy all that kale; the Netflix algorithm would never have discovered the genre “films with lesbians in high-waisted jeans that cry during sex;” her favourite independently-owned queer lady website would shut down without her subscription. She begs to stay alive, and everyone lives gaily-ever-after.
