But mostly I hate, that I don't hate dykes. Not even a little bit, not even at all... - Julia Stiles, 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

Pull up a bar stool and lean in to this knowing camp-y celebration of lesbian weakness and strength through romcom tropes. From slow burning romance on a dirt road to splashing sequined cowgirls in a dirty bar, this programme of sapphic shorts dives into the heart-wrenching joys of dyke desire. Yeehaw!
