The Infamous T examines an intimate year in the life of Jonathon, a young gay man finding himself while living at the intersection of queer and black identities and struggling with a lifetime of homelessness. As he struggles to balance his family of origin and family of choice, stay in school, and be his most authentic self, Jonathon discovers that home is more than four walls, and friendship can transform us. Director Melissa Koch’s award winning film deftly examines the complexities of race, class, and the power of love of all kinds.
