    Has anyone posted about this docu-series? It focuses on the stories of masculine gay black men. This is part 1. Hopefully there's more in the future.

    Dope. I've always felt the lack of visibility was the biggest issue when it came to the one dimensional perception of gay men. Coming from an artistic environment (8/10 gays decide they're supposed to be performers once they realize they're gay..smh) I personally know many guys who were 'gay coons' simply because they were imitating what they thought 'gay' was supposed to be, and you wouldn't know that seeing them today.

    I wonder where Derek J got the idea from...

    I am not even 10 minutes into the video, and I am already triggered. First, Mr. Lowery can get it. Brotha is fine AF.

    I was one of those people who shielded myself with achievements. On this my 33rd year of life, I look back at how hard I pushed myself very early on to be damn near perfect. I used that quest for an achievement to hide. In many ways, I am sad about it. I never allowed myself to be merely live. I stayed up late, always did the extra credit, made perfect grades. In my extracurriculars, I had to not only be on the team but lead it whether it was sports or drama. When Mr. Lowery spoke about his quest to achieve, he was talking directly to me.

    Wow.

    Never thought I'd be thankful for something Derek J did but I am. I am glad he did this. I think even the fem gays can learn from this video. Surprised it's got so few views and comments considering this is from April 2018 and its July and it's from Derek who should have some form of following.

    I'm sure Atlanta is small. I don't know him either. But follow him online. Hes seems like a nice smart guy; has a MBA and getting his PHD too. And has a successful modeling and professional career. He def would be a great catch for someone.
