What is it like for men of color to navigate the world of gay dating?
"You're Cute For A Black Guy" is a short documentary from filmmaker Cameron Johnson that asks gay men of color to open up about their experiences in the dating world. Their responses are both jarring and eye-opening and reveal the realities of men attempting to find love and romance in a world where often the majority of bodies that receive visibility -- whether it be through gay porn, in gay spaces or elsewhere -- tend to be white.
"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."
