Log line: BIFL is expectations, different shades of intimacy, and what it really means to love someone. Blood family versus found family and how toxic relationships can both manifest and disguise themselves. How identities intersect, how labels can matter but don’t have to, and how perception isn’t always reality.
Synopsis: BIFL is a comedic webseries (with a lot of drama) created by and for a wide variety of LGBTQIA+ identities. The series is about intersectionality grounded in meaningful, real-life situations; both behind and in front of the camera, it’s about our communities being seen and heard.
Jill is a little in love with her best friend Chloe and a little terrified to say anything to her about it, even though their roommate Sarah is both convinced that the feelings are mutual and sick to death of waiting for one of them to make a move. When the gang’s New Year’s Eve party ends with one hook-up, one not-quite-hookup, and one not-quite-breakup, everyone is left re-examining what they thought they knew about themselves and each other.
