BLACK, GAY, stuck at home is a project created by Michael Ward (@michaelxward) and Joshua Henry Jenkins (@joshjenks). As the world was asked to stay at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, a need for affinity and community remains.
BLACK, GAY, stuck at home is our effort to both gather folks together but to also center Black queer film, allowing for folks to engage with one another and build community but to also engage with familiar and perhaps new work centering Black queer experiences.
Our inaugural viewing and live chat featured Patrik Ian Polk's 2000 feature film debut Punks which has long been out of print and rarely screened in recent years. That event saw 500+ registrants.
