Healing through story into the radical queer future


who we are


POPPY LIU  creative director

Poppy (she/they) is a queer first generation Chinese American actor, producer, and doula. They believe in art as a spirit practice that invites us into our bravest and most compassionate selves, and storytelling as a process of building houses of healing for our communities, ancestors and next generations.  


AMANDA MADDEN  creative director

Amanda (she/they) is a director, editor, filmmaker and queer artist. She is interested in stories about identity and relationships, community and connection, and bold storytelling (both the stories told and the process of telling them) that values authenticity, collaboration, and experimentation.




Mercy, Mistress is a series in development based on Yin Q's memoirs about being a professional Chinese American dominatrix in New York City.

This series is produced in solidarity with the leather, BDSM, pro domme, sex work, and kink communities.


QUEER  live event

QUEER is an ongoing event series produced in a collaboration with bklyn boihood.

All bodies, identities, and experiences are welcome to attend. However, these events prioritize the stories of QTPOC (queer, trans, people of color.)


NAMES OF WOMEN  short film

Names of Women is a short film based on a true abortion story.

Our mission is to use this story as a gateway for folks to have open, complex, human conversations about abortion.
