"Racial diversity of LGBTQ characters remains an area of concern. Of the 70 LGBTQ characters counted on streaming originals, 77 percent were white. All three platforms tracked here – broadcast, cable, and streaming originals – lacked LGBTQ characters of color." - @glaad in their 'Where We Are on TV Report - 2017' report.

Blasians aims to increase Black, Asian, and LGBTQ+ representation in media. Help us do so. Donate today. Link in bio. #representationmatters #inclusionmatters #diversityandinclusion #diversityintv #queerpoc #blasianstv

YESSSS been waiting like something like this forever. “the show follows this odd-couple duo as they unsuccessfully navigate their lives as grown-ups, one #microaggression at a time.” #Reposting @surinaandmel with @instarepost_app -- Surina & Mel. is our entrance into the first generation world of brown people. This isn’t a show about culture clashes, or an Eat, Pray, Love fest. It’s about two American-born South Asian women who are figuring out what life looks like when you’re not a model minority nor a Bollywood star fighting terrorism on an ABC show, but kinda just two best friends dealing with the messy realities of trying to be halfway decent adults. We’re proud to present a show concept that captures our world - it’s authentically brown, edgy, and a little absurd - all through the lens of the modern day South Asian woman.
It's a first of its kind. 🙏🏽

We need more South Asian women in-front of and behind the camera to tell our diverse set of experiences, so
we’re extremely excited for Surina & Mel which shows us South Asians in a very different light than we are usually portrayed on TV, while also being able to appeal to a wide audience!

And double excited as our very own lead actor and producer Leah Khambata @lkhambata associated produced this Pilot as well! 😃

Can’t wait to see where this show goes! 😊

In a time like today you would think you would see an Indian-American family on television but nope there is not even one sitcom displaying or leading discussions about the South Asian community. It’s almost like we don’t matter. Hello? We exist!! I think it is about time to make a sitcom of the Indian family, the diversity in our community and bring to light social issues as well. We are always playing the side role as a doctor or lawyer but it’s time people get to know our culture, religions, community and family conflicts.
