The wait is almost over for fans of the new black gay film Finding Me. For months the director Roger Omeus Jr. has been teasing fans with short clips of the movie and behind the scenes footage of the cast on YouTube. But if you're planning on making the trip to D.C. this Memorial Day Weekend the wait to see Finding Me will be officially over as the movie will make it's world premiere during the annual Black Gay Pride Celebration.
The official trailer has been released and for the first time you'll get to hear dialogue and become more familiar with the characters and the plot. I'm excited about this film and will definitely support it. Check out the official website here to see when Finding Me will be playing in your town and get into the trailer below.

Good news for fans of The DL Chronicles. The hit television series has been renewed for a second season on here!, the premium gay cable television network.
The DL Chronicles is the first television series to explore black gay and bisexual men and the so-called "down low" subculture and was recently nominated for a GLAAD Media Award in the category of "Outstanding Television Movie or Mini-Series." The critically acclaimed series is written, directed and produced by partners Quincy LeNear and Deondray Gossett (MySpace) and first chatted up on Rod 2.0 in October 2005. It's a sexy show, but, more importantly it is very well written and has seamlessly made the transition from the film festival circuit to episodic television.
Apparently the second season will approach some of the hot button issues in the black gay community, such as "a high school student’s newfound gay relationship and its effects on his homophobic father, a reverend who questions his sexual identity and religious beliefs upon meeting a handsome stranger, and an interracial love story about two guys from different sides of the tracks." Sounds good and congratulations to Deondray and Quincy.
