You Are Not Alone
Antoine Craigwell, 2012, 90 min.
As a documentary, You Are Not Alone is a little more than a run-of-the-mill film.  While containing the basic elements of its genre  interviews with subjects telling their stories and mental health professionals placing these experiences and anecdotes in perspective, and at the same time presenting relevant statistics to support their respective positions; it nudges the envelope of understanding and acceptance a little further along.  While the film maintains the hard hitting edge of a documentary, it gently blurs the line between what is and what could be, moving into the realm of a docu-drama, and illuminating through examples, many of the underlying issues Black gay men are dealing with, but never talked about. This film breaks a taboo in the Black community; it exposes the raw truths behind the silent pain many Black gay men experience and live with.  Issues of denial of sexual identity and sexual orientation; racism; discrimination and stigma; sexual abuse and trauma; an HIV positive diagnosis; the propagation and promotion of homophobia from religious leaders and their congregants; the perils of loneliness; and a sense of isolation and abandonment felt by those Black gay men growing older, are all explored in the film.

$25 GET DOWN/Until There's A Cure Ticket Includes screening, Until There's A Cure fundraising red bracelet, potluck dinner mixer and beverages.
