A young black lesbian woman waits for the results of her HIV test after having been cheated on by a partner. For the middle-aged, HIV positive gay black man in the waiting room with her, the clinic visit is more routine. These are the two characters in documentary filmmaker Tiona M’s latest movie, Bumming Cigarettes.
Tiona joined us this week to talk about her work, and how she’s been inspired to make the kinds of films she would have benefited from seeing herself, as a young black lesbian growing up in the south.
