This Black History Month, Revry is programming LGBTQ-first Black stories with themes from the differently-abled, LGBTQ athletes, activists and the lesbian, trans and the cis-gender lesbian community.
Below are the feature films, documentaries, and series that Revry will feature in February to celebrate and honor the Black community.

“I’m From Driftwood,” – A series based on the online archive of first person LGBTQ stories. The video stories, published weekly, send a message to LGBTQ people everywhere: you are not alone.- Defying What’s Blackness, What’s Femininity And What’s Masculinity (S1 E12) | One group of people told Icon to “act like a man.” Another group told him to “femme it up” and to be a “big black girl” and to “snap, snap, snap and be sassy.” Icon decided to ignore them all and just be Icon.
