Name: Brittani Nichols
What she does: Brittani is a comedian, writer, actor, podcaster, and many other creative titles.
Why she's inspiring: Brittani created the web series Words with Girls, along with a TV pilot of the same name. Episode 5 of the web series (featured above) still makes me laugh and question why this funny is not on my TV.
As a "gender non-conforming black lesbian," Brittani also embodies intersectionality, particularly with her posts on Autostraddle, entertaining and educating as a QTPOC navigating multiple communities. Although her brilliant work has not been exalted as that of a mediocre, white man, its excellence still shines bright enough for her fans to appreciate.
