Event description

Description

Join Positive East for our regular film screenings in Ilford, in partnership with Redbridge Libraries! This month, we'll be screening the Oscar-winning film Moonlight – shown in the York Room.

After the screening, we will have a discussion led by Phil Samba – a social activist and writer with a focus on health inequalities of people of colour – explaining his experience of growing up as a black gay person.

In 2018, Phil was recognised with a Gay Times Honours award. His work primarily focuses on improving sexual health of queer men of colour so they have the best sex with the least harm. Within all of his work, he strives for equality within the intersection of race and sexuality and provides honest representation of black queer men.

With GMFA, he co-developed and starred in both the Me.Him.Us. campaigns – encouraging black men to get tested for STIs and HIV through posters on social media, and across London. He graced the cover of MNEK’s debut album Language and played his love interest in the music video for latest single Girlfriend. Phil is also an advocate and user of PrEP, the HIV prevention drug. He has written articles in mainstream media and gay media and has featured in TV, radio and podcast appearances on race and sexuality, PrEP and sexual wellbeing. He recently took the role of strategic lead of peer mobilisation project #PrEP4QueerMenOfColour at Prepster, a community based organisation that aims to educate and agitate for PrEP.


The evening will finish with a selection of nibbles, juices and hot drinks.

The next film night will be on Monday 9th September (showing 'But I'm A Cheerleader').
