When writing my master’s thesis, I focused my research on the integration of LGBTQ characters into Quebec cinema; its main goal being to take stock of LGBTQ representations. I was disappointed to see that there still remained a great number of stereotypes in Quebec’s cinematographic and television universes. For the creative portion of my thesis, I tried to write a story featuring main LGBTQ characters without giving top billing to the challenges usually faced by these characters (ex: coming-out, transition, family acceptance or rejection, etc.) In a way, Fight for Love is my first attempt at eliminating stereotypes and seeing representation of more in-depth characters – physically, psychologically, and socially diverse- that are not solely defined by their sexual orientation or their gender identity.
