While an undergrad at the historically black, all-male Morehouse College, he-she used queer social networking and dating sites to meet people.Sprawled on many of the profiles were “no fats, no femmes” -- along with things like “no blacks, no Asians, no ballroom kids.” Seeing the frequency of such language inspired Lewis years later to create a feature-length documentary to interrogate and explore race, desire and body image, and the ways in which they’re informed by media, pop culture and capitalism.

I’m not going to sit here and pretend like we all don’t want that ride or die mate.

But perhaps, if you are running into women who aren’t interested in dating you due to your financial status, maybe you should work on becoming a bit more stable in that department.

“I think there is something to be learned from what we are most afraid of, and so, if that’s what I was taught to be afraid of, well [forget] that.

I am the Fat Femme.”Originally from Atlanta, Lewis is a second-year graduate student in media studies at the New School by day and “cultural worker, performance artist and freedom fighter” by night.

When I look in the mirror, for the most part, I like what I see.

I like my curves, I like ass, I like my legs, I like my boobs (which I only have in abundance, when I’m tipping the scales), and I like my face.

The documentary will feature interviews with five black people: a disabled person in South Africa; a queer New York rapper; a Ph D student and blogger in Missouri; an agender writer of work on body positivity and a trans woman.

Using archival research and performance art, Lewis' goal is to discuss the many ways individual desires are rooted in problematic conceptions of varying identities.

While I've dated other races, I'm mostly attracted to black men.

My eyes and heart tend to steer me in that direction.

My friend is one of many men I’ve encountered who thinks a woman won’t date them because they’re not rich.
