QWOCs asking white folks to watch and support shows with positive QWOC rep like TBT, or Black Lightning is not us tryna shove it down ya throats. Because for so long, our stories were rarely ever told or often reduced to stereotypes and caricatures. We are the color of our skin but our skin bear stories that are as different as each color. A black superhero can be a lesbian same as a Muslim photographer or a teenage Latina feminist, but none have the same experiences as a lesbian. A social media director can be bisexual same as an Asian goth Wiccan or an Asian Amazonian nightclub bouncer with super human strength, or a bad ass detective in the 99th precinct in Brooklyn, not one experience their sexuality the same. A queer black woman can be successful and live in a beautiful home with her beautiful daughter while another can be a problematic pansexual artist who is still trying to get her shit together. A Pakistani Nurse can be married to a man and still fall in love with a woman. A black woman can be a theater critic and be a masculine presenting lesbian.
What I’m saying is, we have different stories and those stories deserve to be told and we deserve to be celebrated.
