Black gay filmmaker, writer, and photographer David Barclay Moore has been commissioned to produce and direct two short documentaries about black gay culture for The Masculinity Project for PBS affiliates NBPC & ITVS in conjunction with the Ford Foundation.
He is seeking three black gay couples in the New York or Washington D.C. area with or without children, one middle aged couple married with a child, another younger couple at the start of dating, and a third elderly couple who have been together for years. If you have children it's a plus.
Below are some of the questions David hopes to answer through his documentary.
How do Black gay men negotiate gender roles within their relationships? In a relationship between two men, how is it decided who cooks and who does the dishes? Do both men work, or does one stay at home to be a house-husband and look after the kids? What kinds of stressors do children place on the relationship? What legal rights does a gay spouse have?
If you're interested in participating in this amazing project or you know a couple who might be please contact David via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
