Provocator and Thirty06 have announced the SoCal Premiere of Brad Michael Elmore’s Bit at the Outfest Los Angeles LGBTQ Film Festival. Actress and activist Nicole Maines (The CW’s Supergirl) headlines the cast as Laurel, a small town trans teen who heads to the City of Angels to find a new life. Instead, she meets a gang of intersectional feminist vampires led by Duke (Diana Hopper, Amazon’s Goliath). Not knowing if they want to kill her, befriend her or turn her, Laurel learns to understand the love and dangers of her new group of friends.

Check out a clip from Bit embedded at the top of the article.
As soon as she graduates from her small town, small minded high school, trans teen Laurel immediately sets her sights on Los Angeles, seeking a bigger, more accepting world. As fate would have it, on Laurel’s first night out, she ends up at a warehouse party with a mysterious punk group of girls. Her luck turns when she is attacked and left for dead by the group’s leader, Duke. Laurel awakens to discover she has been bitten and may be turning into a vampire. Duke invites her to join the vampire squad, if she can live by their rules: eat what you kill and no turning men. Faced with the decision to join the girls, Laurel becomes entrenched in their ways while beginning to doubt whether or not she’s ready to become one of the undead.
