Mathis Family Matters
“Mathis Family Matters” is a half-hour show, which debuted on the E! Network in June. The show features Mathis Sr., his wife Linda, and their four children—Jade, Camara, Greg Jr., and Amir, as two of their adult children move back to Los Angeles from D.C. to live under the same roof for the first time in years. As the filming begins, Greg Jr. does not return to the Mathis home unattached. Cooper, his partner of six years along with their two French bulldogs—Knox and Dax also make the trip out west. This decision by the previously private couple positions them as a rare gay couple on national television where both partners are Black—resulting in their relationship being placed under a social media microscope with teachable moments for viewers that were not planned before their first day on set.
Amir, the baby of the Mathis family and a staunch LGBTQ ally and producer in Hollywood for over a decade, initially pitched the idea for the reality series to his family, which Greg Jr. tells The Reckoning took some convincing. Once everyone signed on and E! gave the green light for production to begin, it all came together. Notably, the opportunity to show how the entire family has embraced the full humanity of Greg Jr. and Cooper. A sharp contrast to how the couple has been received by some viewers, who in 2022, still have a difficult time processing the inclusion of Black gay couples on television, and a family who unapologetically love and support them.
