Watch: Trailer For New Doc Asks If Gay Is ‘The New Black’

Watch: Trailer For New Doc Asks If Gay Is 'The New Black'

The meeting between the gay marriage movement and the civil rights movement is explored in “The New Black,” a new documentary by Yoruba Richen. Despite all of the progress our societies have made on both fronts, there remains a dramatic amount of inequality and tension festering within our country. “The New Black” examines both the similarities between both movements, with one talking head asking at one point, “Is gay the new black?” Also on display in the documentary is the dynamic that exists between much of the African-American community and their thoughts on homosexuality, seemingly forgetting their own experiences of inequality and opposing same-sex marriage.

“The New Black” will be screening as part of the Los Angeles Film Festival and Human Rights Watch Film Festival later this month.
