'Harlem' star says show expands the vision of what's possible for Black queer women

From NBC News | Out - Pop Culture by Max Gao

Created by Tracy Oliver (“Girls Trip,” “First Wives Club”), “Harlem” follows the lives of four stylish and ambitious best friends who met at New York University and who are now forced to navigate the trials and tribulations of their personal and professional lives while living in the mecca of Black culture in America. Johnson plays Tye, a successful, queer dating app creator who prefers keeping vulnerability at arm’s length, causing her to date women who might not always match up with her intellectually.

“I think there is something to be said about being a Black person/being a Black woman/being a Black queer woman in any male-dominated field — especially a white, male-dominated field — where you have to kind of shed away layers of yourself in order to get the job done,” Johnson told NBC News.
