Nneka Onuorah's striking film debut shines a long overdue spotlight on the unique challenges facing queer people of color.

Exploring the internal homophobia and gender roles that play out within the African-American community, Onuorah examines the judgements that stud-on-stud couples, bisexual women and pregnant aggressives face from their peers.

Locking down interviews with well-known figures such as Lea Delaria (Orange is the New Black) and AzMarie Livingston (Empire), the story focuses not only on the debate but also on the people affected. Snoop Pearson, best known for playing a murderer on HBO's The Wire, explains the criticism she faced in trying to become more feminine for a role in Spike Lee's movie, Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, without losing her lesbian fans and her own masculine identity.

Onuorah masterfully examines these taboo issues and ignites a conversation about hypocrisy within the lesbian community

A reception/discussion facilitated by Starzette Palmer of the Kansas City Anti Violence Project and featuring guest respondents from our area follows. Donations welcomed at the reception/discussion which will be used for services and programming for KCAVP.
