COMMENTARY: "Pariah" is the story of a sister outsider rarely seen in film

Seldom do I see my image anywhere, especially portrayed in non-stereotypical and non-heterosexist ways on the silver screen. As a matter of fact, if you Google "black lesbians" or "black lesbians in film" you’ll get a plethora of porn sites to visit.

But writer-director Dee Rees’s semi-autobiographical coming-of-age drama "Pariah" gives me a glimpse of my younger self-growing up in Brooklyn.
