What is it About: A show about three gay friends living in New York City, who are struggling through relationship drama and their careers as broke aspiring artists.
Why Makes this Smart: This award winning series has been a quiet YouTube sensation since 2009, with some of its more popular episodes reaching over 300,000 views. It’s funny, charming and endearing. And more than it is about the often ignored personal lives of gay Black men, it is about friendship. Seriously, I am a huge fan of this series. And although Drama Queenz is on a hiatus right now, there is plenty to catch up on with three seasons already under its belt.
