An independent dramedy called “Finding Me: The Series” is making ground on the Internet these days. The series, which follows a circle of friends who struggle with issues in dating and sexuality, is one of only a few mediums to show a glimpse into gay black culture, and its social nuances.

The online series includes scandalous story lines, emotional revelations and other humanistic occurrences many black LGBT Americans (and beyond) experience in their everyday lives.

Created and directed by Roger Omeus, Jr., the “Finding Me” franchise includes the movie “Finding Me: Truth,” which was distributed on DVD, and the online minisodes “Finding: The Series.”

Check out a clip of Finding Me: The Series below:

With today’s lacking space for black LGBT culture on television, Finding Me is a novelty of few all-black productions using the vehicle of the Internet to reach their target audiences. Much like Issa Rae’s┬ácomedy series Awkward Black Girl, creators like Omeus (Ome Productions) are courageously funding and marketing their own work with little to no support from major company sponsors or investors.

Just a few weeks ago, fans of the franchise gathered in New York City’s East Village for its finale, which goes on sale on DVD soon (to order click HERE).

For information on the series or to watch more check it out on YouTube.
