Say my name

Playright Kofi Kofi Kofi.com has adapted his stage play Say My Name, producing a short of the same name:

"SAY MY NAME! is a contemporary Black British Gay Love Story set amidst a gritty grimy urban backdrop of 'street' reality. The story kicks off when 'rude-bwoy' Ricky ignores his undercover lover Chris while hanging 'on road' with his crew because he is afraid being 'outed'. This single act hurts, humiliates and infuriates Chris triggering a raging, brutally explicit, and frank row in which conflicting issues about masculinity, sexuality, race, self definition and love are confronted. With their relationship in the balance Ricky is forced to confront his deepest darkest most inner feelings. "To be or not to be" ...OUT! That is the question. Chris, through his own trials and suffering now reconciled with his gayness, believes he has found the answer, but does Ricky love him enough to break taboo and go against community, tradition and the laws of the 'street'? SAY MY NAME is in fact a love story in the truest sense as it tells the story of self love and what must be sacrificed in order to achieve this ultimate state of being."

Extremely well done. I really enjoyed this. It's good to see our stories being told in different ways.
