The Clexa Project

The Clexa Project will be exploring how the mainstream media industry misrepresents, baits, and erases diverse LGBTQ+ characters, specifically queer women and their corresponding relationships. We are demanding that all stories be celebrated, and wish to educate others of this demand through the production of a feature length documentary. Funds generated through the North Valley Community Foundation will be utilized for all pre-production, production, and post-production costs. With the support and participation of various stakeholders in the movement for positive LGBTQ+ representation, we will be producing this film with the intention of cultivating a culture that humanizes diverse communities and challenges limiting media stereotypes.
