Spending isolation at their queer share-house on the outskirts of Naarm (Melbourne), Thea and Bonnie bake a Women’s Weekly cake decorated with a cricket pitch, Ella and Sarah nurse their cat who is recovering from a traumatic surgery, Thea weaves Bonnie a scarf in Port Adelaide colours which she wears while she watches, heartbroken, as they lose to Richmond in the preliminary final. Thea, Bonnie, Ella and Sarah, like many others, are dealing with job insecurity, social isolation and boredom. Now more than ever, they turn to their chosen family for support, even if that is in the form of watching an episode of The Bachelorette together every evening.
