Riggs, Marlon. Tongues Untied. Herman Gray interview.

Available for the first time on home DVD on March 18th Tongues Untied shares fierce examples of homophobia and racism: the man refused entry to a gay bar because of his color; the college student left bleeding on the sidewalk after a gay-bashing; the loneliness and isolation of the drag queen. Yet they also affirm the black gay male experience: protest marches, smoky bars, “snap diva,” humorous “musicology” and vogue dancers.
