Stephen Winter, “I’m From Chicago, IL”
Are black gay men just guest stars in white gay world? (Closed captioning available here)
To reinforce the sometimes overlooked fact that there are black people in the LGBTQ community, and also that there are LGBTQ people in the black community, I’m From Driftwood’s very first Community Spotlight will feature stories from the black community all this week. We are also making a commitment to feature more stories of all people of color and different ethnicities beyond this week.
Stephen Winter’s story was the last one we filmed, but was the one that tackled the issue of race in the LGBTQ community head on. He even challenged the purpose and necessity of having the Black Community Spotlight, much less being created by a gay white man. His honesty and frankness is refreshing and I thought it would be the perfect way to start the week.
