CHANNEL 4 IS TO screen a documentary by comedian Stephen K. Amos, provisionally entitled Black Gay Men.
The channel - fresh from the racism row over Celebrity Big Brother - will deliver a week of programs in the morning Education slot about the issues gay teenagers face. From 26th February to 2nd March, we can all learn about coming out, family members who come out, gay relationships, and much much more!
Black Gay Men is described as an observational documentary in which Amos examines why homophobia still exists in his community, from his perspective as a black gay man. From the UK to Jamaica, he looks at the prejudice, violence and intimidation - and what can be done for the next generation of young black gay men.
Kudos to Channel 4 for giving light to this subject, but with the huge number of channels on offer, it's hugely disappointing that there isn't more about the thorny subject of race & sexuality... Cheers, BBC, for spending my license fee on worthy series about celebrities singing, celebrities dancing, celebrities cooking...
