Description

BlackOutUK and 56 Dean Street present the UK Premiere screening of ‘parTyboi: black diamonds in ice castles’ plus a q+a with the film's creator, Micheal Rice

Sex and drugs have a long and complex relationship within Britain’s gay communities – impacting on both individuals and their social networks in different ways. There has been little research or public discussion about the patterns of drug use and mis-use among Black gay men in the UK, while anecdotal evidence suggests that illicit drug use and sex (chemsex) has become a problem for many.

BlackOutUK and 56 Dean Street are working together to create spaces where Black gay men and those supporting their health can discuss the implications of chemsex in our lives and co-create solutions that support men in making better-informed choices. We are kicking off a series of events with the UK Premiere screening of parTy boi: black diamonds in ice castles supported by Prepster.

The documentary parTy boi: black diamonds in ice castles focuses on methamphetamine addiction among LGBTQ people of colour in the US. It explores a drug epidemic that is effecting the lives of Black and Latino gay millennials at an alarming rate. parTy boi: black diamonds in ice castles features real stories of people who are thinking about using methamphetamine, dealing with the effects of usage, and surviving addiction. In the past five years, crystal meth has spread through communities in New York City like wildfire. While the drug has gained newfound popularity with people of colour in larger cities, smaller towns are also being disproportionately devastated by the impact of ‘Tina’.

If you identify as a black gay/bi/SGL/queer man, or work to address their health needs, join us to see this eye-opening documentary, and join the conversation.
