WERE YOU GAY IN HIGH SCHOOL? is the story of two queer, Asian American women who share their awkward, closeted stories from high school. Hannah and Kelly open up about their uncomfortable coming-of-age moments as teens by finding commonalities in their stories and learning about the people they used to be. They reminisce about the boyfriends they didn’t like kissing and the straight girls who were definitely flirting with them. Told through live action and animation, the stories shared are both cringeworthy and silly, hilarious and painful.
