Synopsis

Arts & culture took a massive hit worldwide during the Covid-19/Coronavirus pandemic, unable to curtail the need for physical distancing to keep their productions and theatres open for viewing. As the president of the Okanagan Society of Independent Filmmaking, I sought a partnership with New Vintage Theatre to assist them with an LGBTQ+ monologue play, The Pink Unicorn. Thematically based in the 1960s but taking place today, it deals with a mom coming to terms with her daughter identifying as genderqueer and what that means to her as a Christian, mother and human.
