ABOUT KEVIN’S ROOM

The award-winning film Kevin’s Room premeired on television in Chicago in 2001, on the UPN affiliate station, Channel 50 and was viewed by over 200,00 households.

Produced by the Chicago Department of Public Health, the film follows Kevin, a black gay social worker who starts a gay men’s support group. Attended by his friends and others, they discuss such issues as HIV testing, relationships, AIDS, and sexual risk taking among black gay men.

Created to educate, empower and encourage dialogue in communities of color, it was the first film of its kind to bring forth the social and health disparities impacting back gay men, drawing much needed attention to HIV/AIDS.

Kevin’s Room was shown at more than 40 national and international film festivals and health conferences. It also was featured at various black pride events across the country. It’s success spawned two additional sequels, Kevin’s Room II and III.

Today, it is highly-regarded as one of the most innovative tools to educate communities of color about HIV/AIDS.
