GOD TOLD ME
 ― Deeply drawn to Reggie, Felicia grapples with the true definition of love.

GIANTS ― Giants chronicles the journey of three friends who share a firm commitment to living life on their own terms. But, when unable to escape conflicts of identity, sexuality and mental health -- each character reaches a sobering turning point that forces them to either give up or fight for their lives.

CURIOUS ― Bad dates and a childhood pact allow two friends to explore their closets. After all, we're all Curious about something.

#ADULTING  Five millennials matriculate from college grads to "real adults" in the age of social media and technology.
