“Last year, a friend of mine was killed... Just for being gay.” - Stephen K. Amos


Comedian and actor Stephen K. Amos uses his own experiences as a gay black man to explore why homophobia still exists in his own community.

This authored documentary – the title of which is a derogatory term for homosexuals – follows Amos on a journey from his childhood homes in Brixton and Tooting, south London, all the way to Jamaica, where he tries to discover why prejudice, intimidation and violence against gay men remain so prevalent.
