Discover the intersection of identity, culture, and the rich tapestry of stories from the LGBTQ+ community within the African Diaspora in this enlightening film. The BOI DOC takes viewers on a journey through the diverse experiences, challenges, and triumphs faced by LGBTQ* individuals with African heritage.

Beyond the film screening, we offer several immersive experiences including the following

"Evolve Benton screened The BOI Doc for University of Redlands School of Continuing Studies course Structures of Acceptance: Families and Community, a class in our LGBTQ+ Leadership Certificate program, and facilitated live discussion with our students via Zoom. Students were very excited in anticipation of this event, just based on reading about Evolve and their podcast. Evolve and the film exceeded our expectations, and we are looking for more opportunities to center Evolve's work and community in our university learning environments."

Join us for a transformative day of learning, empathy, and empowerment. Together, we’ll delve into the lived experiences of the LGBTQ+ community from the African Diaspora, understanding their unique struggles and celebrating their profound contributions to global culture.

"Evolve and Sir Lex brought a thought-provoking program to Mass General Brigham for Pride Month. Our audience was really engaged and had wonderful questions. I believe this is the first time the ERG has had a Pride event specifically depicting the experience of Black transmasculine, masculine-of-center, and nonbinary folks."

This film is a Mar Media, LLC Production. Created by Evolve Benton and Sir Lex Kennedy.
