From afterelton.com


In honor of Black History Month, Rob Smith hosts a special edition of The Mocha Lounge! Only instead of rehashing regular black history (which you can find anywhere else) Rob and guests Dwight Allen O'Neal (writer/creator of Christopher Street) and blogger Adam Benjamin Irby talk about the past year in black gay pop culture and what to look for in 2009.


Highlights include the success of Noah's Arc: Jumping the Broom - the highest grossing gay independent feature of 2008 - and it's NAACP Image Award nominations as well as the fierceness of RuPaul's Drag Race and the diva herself. The guys also discuss the coming out of comedian Wanda Sykes, Rob's prediction that a black male celebrity will come out in 2009, a few little known facts in gay black history, plus much much more.
