“That’s a crucial part of the series, that the queer community shows up for one another,” the series’ producer, Sekiya Dorsett, said. “Friends become family as queer individuals. During Thanksgiving, during weddings and other events, queer friends are the people you can rely on. They eat with you, they break bread with you. … That’s why you see Staceyann’s friends with her throughout every part of her journey.” Read more from NBC News

The documentary chronicles the US tour of a group of Black lesbian poets and musicians, who become present-day stewards of a historical movement to build community among queer women of color. Their journey to strengthen their community is enriched by insightful interviews with leading Black feminist thinkers and historians, including Dr. Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Nikki Finney, and Alexis Deveaux. As the group tours the country, the film reveals their aspirations and triumphs, as well as the unique identity challenges they face encompassing gender, race, and sexuality. This is a rarely seen look into a special sisterhood - one where marginalized voices are both heard and respected.
