TWENTIES Season 2: Screening & Conversation - NewFest


RSVP for Exclusive Access to Episodes 1 & 2, followed by a conversation with the cast


From creator, writer, and executive producer Lena Waithe and Hillman Grad Productions comes TWENTIES, the GLAAD Media Award-nominated series critically acclaimed for its first-time portrayal of a masculine-presenting queer woman of color as the lead in a primetime show.

The scripted series stars Jojo T. Gibbs (GOOD TROUBLE) as Hattie, a queer Black girl who is chasing her dreams of being a screenwriter in Los Angeles alongside her two best friends, Marie and Nia, played by Christina Elmore (INSECURE) and Gabrielle Graham (PROFESSOR) respectively. While they live separate lives, the girls lean on each other for guidance as they navigate their twenties and test the limits of diversity, love, and inclusion. TWENTIES marks the first time the network has been nominated for a GLAAD Media Awards for a series.

Moderator: Crystal Anderson

Panelists: Jojo T. Gibbs (cast), Christina Elmore (cast), and Gabrielle Graham (cast)
