This comedy is starring the legendary Kim fields as Regina Upshaw, Wanda Sykes as Lucretia, Gabrielle Dennis as Tasha Lewis and many more inspiring actors/actresses. This comedy can be found on Netflix. This series is hilarious because of the family dynamic which is something we love to see in life.

Synopsis: In 1987 New York, LGBTQ ballroom scene, Blanca starts her own house, soon becoming mother to a dancer and a sex worker/model gradually adding more people to her house who need help. With the final season currently airing on FX network this the perfect time to watch from the beginning and catch up if you haven’t already seen the first two seasons. This show/series is based on the issues of acceptance, the AIDs pandemic and having a sense of community within the LGBTQ community in the 80s/90s. Apart from the amazing costumes and dances within the Ballroom scenes the are touching and it does help to understand how LGBTQ people of color came together after being rejected from their own families to create families and deal with the issues together.

Synopsis: Follow Zoey Jonhson (from Black-ish) as she heads to college and begins her hilarious journey into adulthood. If you haven’t already seen this show then you are missing out. This show not only follows Zoey’s Journey in becoming a highly educated adult but it also shows conversations that tend to be overlooked occasionally which is great because it becomes highlighted to get people talking about various issues that we have all faced at some point in time. This show can be found on Disney plus and the ABC channel. Do make sure to watch it. Both fun and insightful.
I have spoken a lot about more mature content but this show I’ve chosen is more for the kids to also show that you have dreams at a young age even if kids do tend to change their minds a lot.
Synopsis: Dottie Mcstuffin puts on her stethoscope and starts fixing her toys and dolls, as she wants to become a doctor like her mother. What I love about this animation is that Dottie’s inspiration to become a doctor stems from watching her mum and using her as a role model which is an amazing thing to see as well as this being bright and colorful for kids to actually engage with. This show can be found on disney plus so do have a watch with your children or even if you want to be in touch with your inner-child have a watch.
