Storyline: Years after a painful breakup, Logan, a transgender man reconnects with his ex-girlfriend, Mara. With the help of Logan’s friend Elliot, the two see if they can heal old wounds.
LOGAN: 21-30 A mid-twenty something transman, several years on hormones. He’s a soft-spoken, but confident guy trying to navigate the world of dating as a transman. He has a very light-hearted sense of humor and view of the world. We are seeking someone with facial hair, and a toned build.

ELLIOT: 21-30 Logan’s best friend, a transmasculine guy in the early stages of his transition. Logan is helping him with his T-shots so those are still new to him. Elliot is the witty, vibrant soul who helps guide and ground Logan. Elliot looks to Logan as a mentor but serves as the catalyst that encourages Logan towards rekindling his relationship with Mara. He has a fun and playful spirit with an optimistic view on life.
