The tiny screen

GREENSBORO — Producers held a casting on Jan. 29 at Bennett College for Women for a lesbian webseries entitled “Come Take a Walk with Me.”

The story revolves around the main character, Channing. The entire series surrounds her life and struggle to come to terms with her sexuality. She has always known she was a lesbian, but never acted on her feelings because of what others around her would think and how they would treat her. This story follows Channing through her college years and various relationships that she has.

Other parts include Ashleigh, Kenzie, Daryl, Nat, a front desk clerk and a sign in attendant.

New characters will be added for future episodes. N.C. residents and those who are in easy driving distance to the state are requested.

ENC seeks assistance

RALEIGH — One battle has been won with the passage of the School Violence Prevention Act, but more work is needed in the fight for LGBT equality in North Carolina.

To help keep the viable and important work moving forward, consider becoming a one-time or monthly contributor. If 25 people could give $25 a month by Valentine’s Day, they would raise more than $5,000. Can’t give $25, then any gift will be gratefully accepted.

Become a guardian for equality now. This consistent stream of funds will enable ENC to continue the “good fight” toward civil liberties for all N.C. citizens.
