Sick & Lit: Series
Sick & Lit is like vomiting after the best night of your life; it's okay to laugh at your pain.
Sick & Lit is a series empowering underrepresented artists to persevere amidst adversity. The series’ producers, sister-duo Mishea Jean and Gabrielle Fairfax, have been on the journey to Sick & Lit from the age of 7, creating their own stories and characters. Being underrepresented as young girls of color, they designed worlds where they were able to exist freely. Presently, Suppressed Deity is still creating platforms for disenfranchised groups, proclaiming self-acceptance. The evolution of Sick & Lit pokes holes in the stereotypes surrounding race, sexuality, and socioeconomic status.
Community: Sick & Lit increases representation and inclusion by digging deep into obscure topics such as disconnected dating in the age of technology, working in spaces lacking diversity, seeking intimacy while dealing with mental illness, and the normalization of broken families.
Mission: Sick & Lit explores the awkward moments in life that are rooted in our lack of self-acceptance and fear of rejection. We offer an up close look at how we as humans adapt to self-deprecating situations in order to survive. Our Hope: The realization that you are never alone; no matter the plot twist.
Artists: Sick & Lit is written, directed and produced by Suppressed Deity LLC. Suppressed Deity (hereinafter “SD”) is founded by sister-duo, Mishea Jean and Gabrielle Fairfax in December 2015. The development of SD came with the self-discovery of the founders, embodying fearlessness to pursue their desire in spite of misalignment with self and societal norms. With reflection and audacity, the duo decided to create media content for educational and entertainment purposes to advocate for themselves and their audiences.
