By Emmy Award-winning director Marlon Riggs, this is a tribute to the joy and complexity of black gay life. Using poetry, personal testimony, rap and performance, TONGUES UNTIED describes the homophobia and racism that confront black gay men. Some of the tales are not pretty: the man refused entry to a gay bar because of his color or the college student left bleeding on the sidewalk after a gay-bashing. Yet Riggs also presents, in a layered work of astounding beauty, the rich flavor of the black gay male experience, from protest marches and smoky bars to the language of the "snap diva" and Vogue dancer.

TONGUES UNTIED became the center of a national controversy in 1991 when many public television stations refused to air it (as part of the P.O.V. Series) and later when it was excerpted by a Republican presidential candidate Patrick Buchanan as part of a muckraking television campaign.
