Media is how we consume information, but the narrative being told doesn’t represent the reality on the ground. Through a web video series called The Peculiar Kind, Alexis Casson explores stories and issues faced by queer women of color.

Alexis Casson wears many hats: cinematographer, editor, photographer, and she also dabbles in simple web design. As a creator and storyteller Alexis’ passion lies with using art as a way to tell the stories of others. Alexis loves the idea of dissecting social issues and creating works that explore topics far beneath the surface. In 2011, Alexis, along with business partner Caneisha Haynes, created the web series The Peculiar Kind.
