We’re trapped. We’re reaching out. We swiped right on dozens of pretty boys and spun the bottle in a circle of our queers. We moved in with mom and dad. We moved out from mom and dad and were subsequently triggered in Trader Joe’s. We stayed up until 3am, stared at the wall, and tried to imagine an idyllic, domestic future. We woke up next to someone who knows what it means to be black and queer. We broke down our ego for our own sake.
This is the first in an annual album series to take place each February during Black History Month! This inaugural album is led by Fifth Wall Performing Arts' Executive Director Maya Johnson and we will hear a collage of stories about black love and relationships during the pandemic from storytellers Samantha Williams, Mattea Williams, and Maya Johnson, with music and sound design by Sajada Domino.
