Event description

Description

Join LGBT Foundation and Rainbow Noir for the Manchester premiere of 'parTy boi: black diamonds in ice castles', a documentary highlighting methamphetamine addiction among LGBTQ people of colour in the US. The documentary explores a drug epidemic through the real stories of people who are thinking about using methamphetamine, dealing with the effects of usage, and surviving addiction. It is an untold tale from the urban perspective that has the possibility to change the perception of the “parTy & play” life style within inner city queer demographics.

After the film screening there will be a Q&A and panel discussion exploring UK substance use within LGBTQI communities, the rising prevalence of the ChemSex scene, and how we ensure sexual health and wellbeing services and support are inclusive of LGBTQI people of colour.

Panellists include Director Michael Rice, and poet and Love Is The Drug host, Nash Langley.

About the Director:

His vision is to bring uncompromising stories and authentic art work of black queer and cis gendered millennials to the forefront of society.

The debut of his documentary parTy boi , black Diamonds in ice castles has sparked controversy, debate and needed dialogue amongst urban LGBTQ communities of color dealing with substance abuse, opioid addiction and HIV infection. Micheal’s curations are not only art but a staple of activism behind the lens.
