tello films produces and distributes innovative, high-quality web series with a lesbian focus. It has been their storytelling policy from their inception in 2007 that they would never have programming that ends with the death of a lesbian character. They have stood by that promise and are proud that they continue to support our community in authentic representation.
tello believes in telling authentic stories about people whose lives are often ignored or marginalized. tello creates web-series specifically for the lesbian/queer community. This means that lesbian/queer characters are front and center. This means that the stories they tell respect the range and variety inherent in being queer.
Why lesbian stories? Because they love lesbians and they don’t feel there are enough of them. Sure, sometimes lesbians are thrown in as side characters or show up on ‘very special episodes’ of your favorite shows, but lesbians and lesbian-specific issues are rarely at the center of mainstream television, movies, or web series.
At tello, they create great new web content that is intelligent but fun, timely but classic, and tasteful yet sexy, a whirlwind of classic ideas from a lesbian perspective, brave and challenging content with a lesbian twist.
