The ATL team caught up with Cathie Swan, filmmaker, creator, journalist and founder of the website Queer Creatives. We spoke to Cathie about her creative practice and the people she wants to champion.

"I think the most important thing to do when you’re starting out is to ask yourself what stories you want to tell, and what is important to you and what do you think needs to be out there. As a queer person that might be more queer stories, it might be things to do with your identity that you haven’t seen before. It has to be what matters to you. Because if you try to predict what people might what to see, if you don’t fit into the ‘mainstream’, whatever that is, and you kinda try to mould yourself to that, you won’t have that same drive and your work won’t have that authenticity.
