In September, @nicolebyer wrote about the importance of seeing black, fat women on television for The Hollywood Reporter. “I constantly see shows that seemingly have diversity but fail to realize that you don't have to hide people of color in the background and in under-five roles,” she explained. “You can give them fully three-dimensional characters who return in multiple (dare I say all?) episodes in a season.” So when we had the chance to speak with her at @torridfashion’s #TheseCurves pool party a few weeks ago, we asked her to further explain why representation is so important. “These little girls who are watching TV, will be like, ‘Oh I can’t do that. I have to be very thin and very white,’” she tells us. “And it’s like, no you don’t.” 👏👏🙌🙌

To the ones who look like me — it is for you that my heart burns brightest. I hear you when you say I represent you. Thank you for your warmth and patience. I see you, sis!

It has been the greatest honor to show us *us*. Eking out this kind of #representation on a weekly basis within a medium that continues to correlate value with proximity to whiteness is a feat. That I got to deliver a relatable, recognizable and unvarnished #StephanieEdwards who looks and feels like women I know — who are people rather than ideas — has been worth more than you know. Thank the tv gods for #TGIT. 🙏🏾

I find that there is one thing that impacts every aspect of our view of our lives, of being worthy of everything from love to joy to justice and that is: to love yourself. ✨Today's #affirmation: The more my love consciousness expands, the more good I can do for everyone I love, starting with me. Self love is the master key. ✨🍯🐝✨ #msserqet #aginginreverse #gemini #eighthwonderoftheworld #happybirthday #happybornday #birthday #hbd #44 #birthday_girl #instapost #eleganceisanattitude #greatday #representation #blackwoman #goddess #queen #blackgold #melanin #melanated #selfvalidation #selflove #authenticity #suprememagnetic #conjurewoman

"I figured you just have to look inside for validation and know that the term, or the statement, brown is beautiful is without disclaimer. It's not that light brown is more beautiful or dark brown is less. Brown is beautiful. And you kinda just have to know that for yourself."

Little Brown Girl is a hybrid documentary that combines animation, interviews and visual montage. It is an exploration of the power of representation in the 21st century and the effect a lack of meaningful, three dimensional representation had on two generations of 'Little Brown Girls'.

Koru symbolizes new beginnings. I am glad this is my tattoo. It puts me at ease and lets me know I am open and ready for anything! #newbeginnings #koru #tattoo #representation

One of the reasons why I am an actor is because I want to know more. 🌏
Why do I think that becoming an actor is going to force me to know more❓
Because we as humans do things that we like, we read 📕about things that we like, we go and see 👀 things that we enjoy and we avoid conversations on topics that we don't enjoy so much or don't feel comfortable talking about 🙅‍♂️
But as an actor, 🎬 when you decide to work on a certain role you have to build the character that fits the story and, in most cases, that character is completely independent and different from who you, as a person, are. 👩‍🎤
That character might like things that you don't like, that character might read about things that you've never read about which forces you to learn about things you would otherwise never learn about... 📚👩‍💻
Which consequently broadens your spectrum of interests and makes you a more well-rounded individual overall. (That is, of course, if you're serious about your craft) 🤓 and that's one of the reasons why I'm so drawn to this profession. 🎥
For my next role, I've got to learn about abduction and aliens 👽😊😜 #actor #actress #craft #thoughts #ideas #learn #process #growth #topic #film #filming #betweentakes #representation #agent #behindthescenes #bts #filmindustry

EROS AND PSYQUE. A contemporary representation.

The project revisits the emblematic myth of Eros and Psyche in Greco-Roman mythology.

It is one of the most prolifically represented myths in the #history of Western #art and has contributed to the #conceptual foundations of #romanticism and heterosexual relationships in the West. "We believe in an imaginary order, not because it is an objective truth but because believing in it enables us to cooperate effectively" Yuval Noah Harari

Greco-Roman mythology was first created and transmitted orally and later in written form by white #European men.

The diffusion of these myths, like all stories, depends on them being "felt" and on their societal resonance – only thus will they endure – and, to the extent that they are retold they will be assimilated in patterns of acceptable behavior and organization.

Myth helps us preserve the established social order and its existence depends on many people’s belief; if people stop believing, myths will no longer be perpetuated.

For this Project, one must seek a literal #representation of the story as written by Apuleius in an environment that emulates a Renaissance “Locus amoenus” – underwater.

The idealization and placidity represented historically is confronted with a contemporary literal representation that evokes the aesthetics of classicism.

The myth, not only reveals an account of the cultural past, it is also an organizational and hierarchical paradigm represented repeatedly and “de facto” up to the present day.
With Teresa Hernández (as Psique) and Gabriel Mirelman (as Eros- Cupid)

We're fortunate enough to have several empowering females on our board of directors, such as Pam Darrow, Pixar's project manager on several award winning films. Looking to share her expertise with future filmmakers, Pam is doing her part to help increase the drastically low representation of #womeninfilm. Ya'll can also help increase these stats by heading to the link in our bio to donate to our #40KinMay campaign🎬🎥 #campreelstories

Strong women.
Strong girls.
Love this picture, and I cannot wait for Wonder Woman.
