New Delhi: Singer-actress Monica Dogra says that she is in favour of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights and when she was offered a lesbian`s role in American short film `Relapse`, she was thrilled.

"Relapse" tells the story of two women in love torn by an illness. Produced by Film Independent in Los Angeles, the film also stars Casey Legler - the first woman to be signed exclusively as a male model.

“I am very happy to be a part of a film that revolves around the idea I firmly believe in, and working with Casey has been an exciting experience, being an ex-Olympian she pushes herself to take a step further every time and seeing her doing that motivates me to bring out the best in me,” Monica said in a statement.

The film, directed by Rosie Haiber, will be premiered at the LA film festival June 9.
