If you're in Atlanta and you're a fan of theater then you'll definitely not want to miss an incredible one-man show by Lynwoodt Jenkins entitled 'FAGGOT'. I'll give you a second to take in the title...okay I'll proceed now.

The plot deals with being gay in the African-American community and its unique challenges. The main character is Michael, who has always known he was different. He goes through a sexual rite of passage at the early age of 12 and begins to fear he won’t be a good son to his mother.

At 18, he runs away from home in Atlanta and goes to live in New York. When he arrives, he goes through some hard times. At one point, he begins working at a restaurant, and the owner allows him to live in his basement.

But when the owner finds out that Michael is gay and has had a male visitor, he kicks Michael out and leaves him homeless. Jenkins portrays all the characters, including a drag queen Michael befriends. (SOVO).

Lynwood gave patrons at Outwrite Bookstore in Atlanta a preview of the performance last night when he performed excerpts from his acclaimed show. Faggot runs May 22-June 14 at The Whole World Theater in Atlanta. To purchase tickets click here. Get into the video below.








A groundbreaking look at gay and lesbian Muslims, A JIHAD FOR LOVE uncovers a hidden face of the world's fastest-growing religion. Shot over five years in 12 countries and produced by Trembling before God's Sandi Simcha Dubowski, this moving documentary explores reconciling faith with sexuality in societies where "debauchery" can be punished by imprisonment and even death. Embodying the literal meaning of jihad as "inner struggle," the film's subjects reveal the hopes of a community fighting for its place in the heart of Islam.

The film opens today in NYC and can be seen through May 27th at The Waverly Theater. Check out the trailer below.
