Lesbian Web Series SCISSR Premieres First Episode

Four lesbians. Twelve relationships. One iPhone app. The pilot episode of Lauren Augarten's new web series Scissr explores the romantic challenges of a group of lesbians living in Brooklyn, NY.

Aviva, Corey, Emily and Niamh are four twenty-something lesbians from very different backgrounds.  Aviva (Lauren Augarten) has just come out and is hoping to connect with the other lesbians online, while Corey (Paulina Singer) has just gone through a traumatic breakup and is ready to swear off women altogether and Emily (Kelly Sebastian) is constantly looking for the next best thing. Navigating life and love in Brooklyn is easy for none of them, but when they meet through an iPhone app, the girls realize they have much more in common than they originally thought.

 

Trans actress Jamie Clayton stars as Niamh, a cisgendered lesbian woman and the gatekeeper of Scissr, the neighborhood gay bar. Clayton previously played the role of Michelle in the Emmy Award winning series Dirty Work and Kyla on HBO's Hung in addition to co-hosting VH1's groundbreaking show TRANSform Me with Laverne Cox. The series also stars Paulina Singer (Nilda on How to Make it in America) and out actresses Kelly Sebastian (Host of Tastemakers on MuchMusic), Alisha B. Woods and series creator Lauren Augarten (Maybe Someday).

 

FROM SERIES CREATOR LAUREN AUGARTEN

“When I realized I was a lesbian at 24 I soaked up all the lesbian shows I could find, but there weren't many available and I didn't feel like they really reflected the community I was discovering. With Scissr I set out to create something that I could relate to as a 20-something lesbian in the beautiful cesspool of struggle that is Brooklyn, NY.”
