Black LGBT Artists Project – Episode 204 of NoMoreDownLow.TV (Part 4 of 4)

Photographer Greg McNeal: “My original goal was to create strong, black images to try to balance out the negative images of black males in the media.”
Duane Paul Sculptor
Painter Shaunte Johnson: “It’s about expressing yourself and I think if we don’t have that then we’re walking around with a void of something.”

Sculptor Duane Paul: “It’s very rare that you find an artist that is gay, black, out… and doing work that speaks to his experiences.” seldom that you find….his experiences.”
Painter Shaunte Johnson
The void of same gender loving identified artists has inspired members of the greater Hollywood art community to start a national movement called “THE BLACK LGBT PROJECT.”

C. Jerome Wood, Founder of The Black LGBT Project: “The inspiration was my people, myself looking into the mirror. Seeing people passing and living and often time being pushed to the side — marginalized (as many people say). In addition, hiding themselves… All of you here are participants, you need to go you’re your closets, go into your garages, find some materials, give me some history. This must be archived.”

He added: “I really want to see the lives expressed in visual and performance art. I want the material to be archived. I think it’s very important that we have documentation. We have voices. We have skills and the ability and I think we first and foremost should recognize each other and acknowledge each other. And that’s my motivation.”
