 Al Nisa: Black Muslim Women in Atlanta's Gay Mecca Film Documentary

Living on the West End of Atlanta, I see Muslim women every day. I often quieted the urge to greet them with a polite “As Salaam Alaikum” as I passed them in the aisle of the grocery store. This was a desire from another life. An identity that I could no longer access. Then the question came to my mind and I could not seem to shake it. If there are so many black people, Muslim people, and gay people moving to this city, are any of them black, Muslim, and gay also?

It started as a project, an innovative subject for class. But, one day, a woman who heard that I was searching for lesbian Muslims on Facebook contacted me and asked me if I wanted to go to prayer with her that Friday. Another awkward silence followed. I hadn’t considered that I could do that. I hadn’t considered that I was a part of the community I was documenting. I worked so hard to be objective and professional that I didn't realize the radical feminist community that was being created from this project was one that I could also step into and be a part of.

Queer Porn: "A Brown Perspective"

Brown images in Porn especially Queer Porn—As a Producer, Director, and Retail Store owner (Feelmore510 Adult Gallery), I have created something from my mind that many have wanted to see. How does one go about creating content with images that are absent from the industry and making certain those images are held in the highest regard? A group discussion on taking ideas from concept to screen and having a powerful intent behind the product enough to not only sell but to inspire.

This dialogue will begin with a short 15 min montage of films I have created from Tight Places, Hella Brown as well as other pieces currently in the works.
