Don't Frighten the Horses (Short Film Teaser Trailer)

Jesse desperately wants to hold Derek's hand, but he soon remembers that a bus stop is not a safe space for public displays of queer affection. A suggestive glance between them becomes more than they bargained for. True love takes courage, but in LA no one is braver than a gay who eats carbs.

so long as they don’t do it in the streets and frighten the horses!”
- Beatrice Rose Stella Tanner aka Mrs. Patrick Campbell (1865-1940)
