In Celebration of Wicked Queer's 35 years we are revisiting films that made an impact on our culture and continue to resonate. Filmmaker Marlon Riggs' landmark film TONGUES UNTIED gave a voice to communities of gay black men, presenting their cultures and perspectives on the world as they confront racism, homophobia and marginalization.

“My struggle has allowed me to transcend that sense of shame and stigma identified with my being a black gay man. Having come through that fire, they can’t touch me.” — Marlon T. Riggs
