Synopsis: I’M OKAY is about “Tamarin” (they/them), a 15-year-old non-binary teen in upstate NY.

Seeking actors the following roles:

“JADEN” – 17 year old cis-gender male, Caucasian. A high school junior from Ulster County, Jaden is easy going, mainstream, doesn’t like to talk about his feelings – but will if forced to. (Seeking actor 17 - 19 year old)

“KYLE” – 15-year old, LGBTQ+, cis-gender male, person of color. One of the lead roles, Kyle is a warm and outgoing character with supreme confidence and a giant supporter of his closest friends.
