What makes Black lesbians so special? Suggs takes a fresh and funny approach to explore this and other questions using a mixture of scenes shot on film and video with running commentaries by women in the know.
"A charming video about food, dancing shoes and the way some girls dress."

"Details the daily rituals of black lesbians in a voyeuristic short that speculates on "straight" thinking about gays. The piece uses an unseen pair of chatty "spectators" whose curiosity about how lesbians eat, and what kind of shoes they wear are countered by asking, How often do you get harassed on the street?"

TWN acknowledges that in New York we are on the unceded territory of the Lenni Lenape,
Canarsie, Shinecock, and Munsee peoples and challenges the harm that continues to
be inflicted upon Indigenous and People of Color communities here and abroad,
which is why we all need to be part of the struggle for rights, equality and justice.
