Make the Yuletide gay with these feel-good lesbian films

The holidays are upon us and lesbian streaming network Tello Films is once again making the Yuletide truly gay!  

When you’re planning your Holiday streaming or videos, look for the charming LGBTQ+ romcom A Holiday I Do—making its world premiere Nov. 10—with an outstanding ensemble cast, starring Lindsay Hicks (Her StoryThe Bigger Picture, VSBK) and Rivkah Reyes (School of RockA Picture Perfect Holiday) with Marsha Warfield (9-1-1Stand Out: An LGBTQ+ CelebrationNight Court) and Jill Larson (All My Children).

When a small town, single mom falls for her ex-husband’s beautiful and sophisticated wedding planner, she’ll need some Christmas magic to fix the chaos that ensues in the charming, LGBTQ+, holiday romcom, A Holiday I Do, making its world premiere Nov. 10 on the popular, lesbian Tello Films network.

Directed by Paul Schneider and Alicia Schneider (Just Another Dream), A Holiday I Do stars Lindsay Hicks (Her StoryThe Bigger Picture, VSBK) and Rivkah Reyes (School of RockA Picture Perfect Holiday) with Marsha Warfield (9-1-1Stand Out: An LGBTQ+ CelebrationNight Court), Jill Larson (All My Children), Joe Piazza (AbstruseEnigmaBetrayed), India Chappell (American Horror Story, Gossip Girl), Colette Hahn (Christine’s Wager), Cameron Judd (Red Hood: The Fan Series, OK) and drag queen Monique Madison.

With an uplifting message for those in the LGBTQ+ community who might not feel welcomed for the holidays, 10% percent of the producer’s proceeds from the film are going to support The Trevor Project, a non-profit which provides mental health and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning youth.

Frazzled, single mom Jane (Hicks) is raising 10-year-old Lexi (Hahn) and managing her family’s horse farm following the loss of her father … holding it all together with a little moral support from her mom (Larson) and their festive neighbors. When she agrees to be the best (wo)man in the elaborate, yuletide wedding of her BFF ex-husband, Mark (Piazza), she finds herself navigating an emotionally charged holiday, a bridezilla fiancé (Chappell), a raging blizzard and a surprise visit from a no-nonsense banker (Warfield). Things become even more complicated and hectic when an unexpected romance sparks between her and the wedding planner, Sue (Reyes). As the big day looms, Jane’s going to need a little Christmas magic to not only clean up the mess she’s made, but to rescue her family’s farm before it’s too late.
