H.I.M. Dives Deep Into The Black Queer Experience

With more queer content hitting the airwaves, one of the things that's definitely been lacking on the cinematic forefront is black queer representation. Back in the day we had Patrick Ian Polk breaking ground with Punks, The Skinny and Noah's Arc, and indue masterpieces from Lee Daniels and the late Maurice Jamal. But a black queer centered film has been long overdue.

H.I.M., set to be released digitally on August 8 from Breaking Glass Pictures, is the story of Damien (Brandon Karson) and his cousin Kendall (Rahim Brazil) as they navigate love and learning. "After experiencing his first encounter with heartbreak, Damien dives into the chaotic world of college life," according to the film's press notes. "Damien stumbles around campus like the other lost freshmen doing his best to keep his eyes glued to his books and off of shirtless jocks, frat-boys, and handsome intellectuals. But Damien's level of discipline may prove to be no match for the ways of a manipulative college senior who threatens to establish a degrading reputation for the freshmen."

H.I.M. is directed and produced by Anthony Bawn (Conframa, Velvet Jesus) with the scripts written by Tyson Anthony. The series also stars Mimi Fletcher, Desmond Fletcher, Robert Sherrill Jr., and Darren Johnson.
