Movie Info

The world of gay black men is often insular and lonely, fraught with the pain of rejection by a mainstream society that neither understands nor tries to accept their lives. The two-edged sword of racism and homophobia cuts deep. This highly regarded film by Emmy award-winning director Marlon Riggs takes the viewer inside that world to experience its special joys and pain. Personal accounts, poetry, music, and dance are used to present voices, tongues untied, to tell of this often muted existence.more

Audience Reviews for Tongues Untied


"Special Interest" indeed. A daring foray into the deep, dark forest where black queens and SNAP! divas frolick. Disturbing in whole, touching in parts. Sitting through this film is nothing short of serving in a leper colony as far as building tolerance is concerned.
