“I think I may be Gay…Is THIS is how I’m supposed to behave? Are THESE the type of friends I should seek out?”
Some of them may begin to adopt certain mannerisms in an attempt to blend in…while others may fall deeper into a shell since they can’t relate to that lifestyle.
But all of that should be discussed in a different post. What we do know now though is that out of all the current openly black Gay filmmakers actually telling stories about Gay men of color, Patrik-Ian Polk’s work has been the most quality and consistent thus far. The trailer for The Skinny looks crisp and well photographed with seemingly no major audio issues (a problem for many independent black filmmakers). The cast looks great and based on what we can see they seem to be able to hold their own given the material. Also it appears Polk’s title for the film has a double meaning since no one in the entire trailer looks out-of-shape or Fat at all.
