Khaki Is Not Leather

Everyone is spending way more time at home. Dating is essentially suspended. People are stressed and starved of intimacy. We turn to our phones, our laptops, and try to find someone. Anyone to make us feel good. Feel seen.

Sometimes it works, sometimes it gets weird. This search for connection is where we find our stories. “Khaki is Not Leather” hopes to bring a new perspective as it explores the ways in which we perform nearness and the ways we live it.

Log on. Explore. Connect... But don’t forget to tip.

Watch Now.
