What's Bae @ First Swipe?
Bae @ First Swipe is a new web series that follows Amara and her three roommates as they look for love, and relationships using social media and dating apps. The show poses the question, "Can you find real love on a dating app?"
The series is set to the backdrop of Washington, D.C. and the surrounding metropolitan area, showcasing the real DC from historic U street to H street NE to the hustle and bustle of 7th Street Chinatown.
Bae @ First Swipe is a fresh look at the lives of young Blacks in their twenties figuring out their careers as well as how to find their place in the world.
Who We Are
The show came to being because Amanda Rhodes, herself a twenty something Black Millennial was tired of complaining about not seeing anyone on TV or in the movies that looked like her. It was high time that she stop complaining about what wasn't there and just create the reality that she wanted to see. Instead of seeing the same sparse characters played over and over again in different movies and films, Bae @ First Swipe is filled with a multitude and variety of Black characters that you know from your family, work, and just everyday life.
