      195 LEWIS is a dramedy series about a group of women navigating the realities of being Black, queer, and poly in New York City.

      We'll be joined by YAANI SUPREME, co-creator of 195 LEWIS.

She currently serves on the Mayor's Advisory Committee for LGBT affairs in Washington DC. Her critically acclaimed works include writing, producing, and/or featuring in critically acclaimed works such as Sekiya Dorsett's WOMEN AND THE WORD: THE REVIVAL MOVIE, Chanelle Aponte Pearson's "195 Lewis," The Artchitects' THE PECULIAR KIND and forthcoming, Darren Mallet debut short film, BODYMORE.
