Meet Sally.

The Two Sallys edit at the Kapisanan Philippine Centre for Arts and Culture
Sally began with an ending. I was in the middle of mourning a breakup and as a typical artist and conduit to all that is painful and bizarre, I decided to make online dating a sport. I was going to randomly choose numerous different people to date on Friday and Saturday nights just to occupy my time and to see what kind of weirdos I could accumulate. 

I hit a goldmine. It was like the opening credits of the Beverley Hillbillies, only instead of some stereotypical old lady dancing around Texas Tea, I was a queer coloured chick looking for the exit sign while sitting opposite some head case. 

I would share my unbelievable stories with friends who would listen to me, slack-jawed wondering how on earth could the internet be such a tool for destruction. Almost every friend suggested I write about it because my experiences were so unbelievably embarrassing that I had to make it public. 

Meet, “When Sally Met Sally” an online video collection of queer dating disasters. 

The rules are:
*Each episode features the same queer people playing numerous different “Sallys” in numerous different dating disasters.
*Each episode is based on true stories submitted by our viewership.
*Each episode is improvised, usually shot in one take and is around 2 minutes long. 
This first episode of "When Sally Met Sally" illustrates the very first of my online dating spree. If you recognize yourself in this video, do not call me. Take my phone number and burn it, please and thank you.
