BLACK PRIDE NYC IS PROUD TO PRESENT A POWERFUL NEW FILM ADDRESSES RACISM AND HOMOPHOBIA

Set in contemporary rural Louisiana, STRANGE FRUIT explores the tribulations of William Boyals, a successful Black gay New York lawyer who comes home to the life from which he escaped to investigate the lynching of his also-gay childhood friend, Kelvin. Amidst the sultry beauty of the bayou, William is forced to wade through a bog of conspiracy involving an insidious network of local law and a dangerously entrenched subculture. At the same time, he finds himself having to confront the reasons he left in the first place. The harder he looks, the deeper he gets, until the veil is pulled back to reveal a quagmire of racism and homophobia that threatens his life. The screening will be followed by a all star panel discussing Racism and Homophobia in America. LIMITED VIP and General Admission tickets available. Buy Now.
