About this submission

A werewolf in college goes to a house party on the night of the full moon to confess her feelings to her crush. When I started writing Moonrise I realized I was creating an allegory for my own experiences as a young trans person, where I felt like I had to hide my identity to be likeable and ended up pushing away the people that accepted me the most. I have always worked though my traumas with comedy, and feel that queerness is an avenue of humor that has not yet been fully explored. Thus: the gay college werewolf house party movie was born.
