Fans Animate Queer Pirate Kiss in Our Frames Mean Love

A Little Bit Human published an article about the project featuring an interview with the moderators, Em and Cait.

HBO Max’s Our Flag Means Death, starring Rhys Darby and Taika Waititi, is a lot of things. It’s a swashbuckling romance, a celebration of historical queer pirates, and, for the countless fans whose hearts the show sailed into last year, a genuine treasure.
