“SNATCHED…Stories From Down There” is a one-woman multimedia show about what can happen “when your pussy falls in love…and takes you along for the ride!”

Personal, honest, and hysterical stories told through a voice rarely heard in our culture – a “seasoned” lesbian with no fear of showing her flaws and vulnerability, while also being vibrant, sexual, wickedly witty, and…raunchy.

“SNATCHED...” was chosen as one of The Best of The Hollywood Fringe Festival and was awarded the Encore Producers Award, and received grants from The City of West Hollywood Arts and The Los Angeles Women’s Theater Festival.

Written, Produced, and performed with original songs by Loree Gold.

A documentary by Kathryn L. Beranich and Andrea Meyerson

Community has always been the driving force behind Andrea Meyerson’s work. And that did not change when COVID-19 locked us down, Andrea devised a plan to keep lesbians connected and entertained.

On March 20, 2020, she launched Women On The Net and went live five nights a week via Zoom. Women all over the world came together for events that included comedians, films, musicians, panel discussions, parties, and more. These nightly gatherings helped alleviate the loneliness and feelings of isolation by bringing joy, laughter, and new friends into these women’s lives.

Andrea called it distant socializing, the participants called it a silver lining.

As the world has started to open up, AN UNEXPECTED COMMUNITY, a documentary about Women On The Net has gone into production to preserve this piece of lesbian herstory and celebrate the beauty of our community. We would be most grateful if you would consider supporting the making of this film.

All contributions made through the Center for Independent Documentary (CID), our fiscal sponsor, are tax-deductible. No donation is too small!

Please click on the Donations link for more information regarding our fiscal sponsor and the documentary, currently in production.

And be sure to watch the video — you might see yourself in it! However, not seeing yourself in this crowdfunding video does not mean you won’t still be featured in the film!
