The T.R.U.T.H. Project is a non-profit in Houston that works to educate and mobilize LGBTQ+ communities of color and their allies, with resources that promote mental, emotional and sexual health through the arts. The group‘s founder, Kevin Anderson, recently received a grant to produce a new digital documentary entitled, “Black Boy Symphony.” Shot at the Deluxe Theatre in Houston’s historic downtown 5th Ward, the film explores the lives of several gay men of color in the wake of a global pandemic. Brave Black men of varying ages reveal plenty about their authentic selves and the challenges they face, including racism, homophobia and marginalization. Host Eddie Robinson chats with Anderson, the film’s creator, along with one of the men featured in the movie, John Nicklos, in a deeply moving discussion that’s bold, provocative and unguarded.
