Do you remember your first queer sexual experience?

The first time you hook up with someone of the same sex can be daunting -- but also thrilling, and the beginning of a whole new way of being in the world.

Filmmaker Jenna Laurenzo wanted to explore this moment, specifically for queer women, in her new short film "Girl Night Stand."

"I made 'Girl Night Stand' to serve as a prequel to my feature 'Lez Bomb,' which we'll be shooting this spring," Laurenzo told The Huffington Post. "I wrote 'Lez Bomb' because it was the movie I wanted to see but couldn't find -- particularly when I was coming out. Sure, coming out of the closet and dealing with the shit storm of emotions sucks, but there's light at the end of the tunnel and I wanted to see the comedy that takes place while navigating that particular tunnel. I'm hoping the film showcases the universality of those emotions; it's always terrifying coming into our sense of self and speaking our truth, sexuality aside."
