Short Doc “You’re Cute for a Black Guy” Explores The Gay Dating Scene

color

“You’re Cute For A Black Guy” is a short documentary from filmmaker Cameron Johnson that shines a light on some experiences gay men of color have had in the gay dating scene.

“I made this piece because I wanted to make sure that I wasn’t crazy,” Johnson told The Huffington Post. “I couldn’t be the only gay black man who white dates have said insane things to, so I ventured to find others who shared my experiences. What I discovered is that my story isn’t uncommon, it’s just untold… I hope that my work will help to broaden the discussions of what it looks like to be a gay man in 2015, and give people insight into worlds they haven’t understood. Also, seriously never say any of these things to black men again.”
