Aryka Randall wanted to see more diversity in media coverage of LGBT folks, so in 2010 she created her own site, TheFabFemme.com, to help fill that niche. The site includes news, interviews and life tips for all kinds of femmes-for example, you can find a blog post on Sharon and Rhonda, the couple from ABC´s Black-ish; advice on how to glow with inner beauty; and a Q&A with Henrietta Hudson co-owner Lisa Cannistraci. In addition to TheFabFemme.com, Randall also made a web series, Girl Play, about the lives of four femmes in New Orleans. Right now, she´s working on a three-part docuseries called (what else?) Femme, a real-life look at the experiences of feminine-identified lesbians. With all that she´s accomplished, Randall certainly deserves to take a breather, but she´s doing just the opposite, with plans to write a book, make documentaries and create a t-shirt line within the next two years. All this and she has yet to turn 30! “The most rewarding aspect of my work is having the ability to share women´s stories in a positive light,” she says, “while playing a part in unifying ladies across the world through love, hope and inspiration.” Sounds pretty damn fab to us! -GH
