Marlon
Riggs, with assistance from other gay Black men, especially poet Essex
Hemphill, celebrates Black men loving Black men as a revolutionary act.
The film intercuts footage of Hemphill reciting his poetry, Riggs
telling the story of his growing up, scenes of men in social intercourse
and dance, and various comic riffs, including a visit to the "Institute
of Snap!thology," where men take lessons in how to snap their fingers:
the sling snap, the point snap, the diva snap. The film closes with
obituaries for victims of AIDS and archival footage of the civil rights
movement placed next to footage of Black men marching in a gay pride
parade.
