Dyke Program

More than ever, the need for understanding and tolerance is apparent today. The only way to bridge the gaps of misunderstanding is to expose and explore different experiences and perspectives. Women in the Director’s Chair proudly features this segment with introspection (CAMOUFLAGE PINK, A FISH [ALMOST] EATEN BY A SHARK), emotion (ISN’T IT OBVIOUS, WHAT”S IN A NAME), and humor (DISPOSABLE LEZ, LES BE FRIENDS).
