Rosie Haber and Lauren Cioffi – in collaboration with The Front – are the women behind New Deep South, a web-series, which “explores the vibrant and multifaceted queer culture that is emerging in the American South.” The first two episodes are set in Jackson, Mississippi and the Delta area. “Playing against old stereotypes of Mississippi as a state of social conservatism and stagnation, we follow the lives of queer youth to explore the tangled and complex nature of sexual identity in the New Deep South.”
