The highly anticipated new black gay feature film "Finding Me" had it's New York City premiere on Wednesday night in front of a sold out audience before the DVD hits stores on Tuesday, April 21st.

The cast and crew along with NY's black gay elite and hundreds of fans came out in support of first time filmmaker Roger Omeus Jr's fresh and seductive drama about young black gay love and the journey towards self-acceptance.

Ray Martell Moore stars as Faybien Allen, a young black, idealistic, yet cautious gay man who begins a journey in finding out who he is and how he fits in the world. His love interest activist Lonnie Wilson, played by Derrick L. Briggs (ADTV) jump starts feelings that Faybien has suppressed and challenges his fears of being openly gay.

Also rounding out the cast are newcomers J'Nara Corbin, Eugene Turner, Carl Garnett, Maurice Murrell, and Ronald DeSuze.

Queer Cinema. org critic Michael Klemm says Finding Me is "smartly acted". "It has much to say about what it means to be queer and coloured, and it was a refreshing reminder that not every gay person in the world is out and proud and being fabulous."

Finding Me should be available at your local Blockbuster on Tuesday, but you can pre-order your copy here. Get into the trailer below.

Yeah, I missed the screening. I tried to purchase tickets on-line but it said that you couldn't. I didn't think about just going to the box office. Anyway, I pre-ordered my copy on Wednesday. I can't wait to see it.
