Crowdfunder: Butch Pal for the Straight Gal
UPDATE: This project is now complete and the webseries is now live.
Watch the trailer:
Butch Pal for the Straight Gal is a unique reality-based comedy about five women (aka the Fierce5) empowering straight women to throw away societal gender norms and fearlessly harness their unique inner voice. So many women suffer from poor body image, low confidence levels, or find themselves stuck in codependent relationships that can limit their true potential. The Fierce5 hones in on a woman’s true voice, then helps her step into her power and bring that voice to the forefront. That can mean restructuring a woman’s closet, minimalizing her makeup routine, showing her how to change own tire, or literally teaching a woman to fish!

The Story of Butch Pal
In a world where societal pressures often force women to act, dress and conform to unrealistic feminine stereotypes, five queer women, each with their own speciality, help straight women re-discover their true identity and offer tips on how they can overcome outdated gender roles. With areas of expertise including Fashion, Grooming, Cooking, Design, and Culture, straight women will learn everything from simplifying their morning routine to life skills traditionally attributed to men.
