Film: Infamous T

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.

#Film: Website – Take a look at our film section

We now have a section dedicated to some of our favourite LGBT+ films and documentaries. If you haven’t yet seen the classic ‘Paris Is Burning’ (1990) directed by Jennie Livingston, it’s an absolute must watch!
We have included an assortment of titles which hopefully together serve as a guide for anyone who wants to examine our roots through film.

We’ll be updating the collection with golden oldies and new essentials as often as possible so keep an eye on the ‘Films & Docs‘ page of our official website. www.lgbtunderground.com
