Event Details

Two new-ish roommates, Libbie and Dael, come home from a night of drinking and getting to know each other. They confess their mutual crushes on each other and hook up. Soon, they become lovers, and a relationship develops. But when Dael introduces Libbie to his bro as a ‘friend’ and ‘roommate,’ Libbie realizes it’s not what she thought it was. Part One in the Transamorous Trilogy by Braided Sisters Productions, Discretion is an uncommon story about a common trans experience that needs to be told. It reminds us that we have the option to choose better for ourselves.
