Movie Info

Check It is about a gay African-American gang struggling to survive in one of Washington D.C.'s most violent neighborhoods. The film is an intimate portrait of 4 childhood friends - as they claw their way out of gang life through an unlikely avenue - fashion. With members now numbering in the hundreds, the Check It is a small gang in one city but it reflects a national issue. Being gay in poor, violent African-American neighborhoods carries a dangerous stigma. Standing up for who they are is more than an issue of pride for this group-it's risking their lives.

  • Check It provides a realistic look at the effects of cyclical poverty, prejudice, and homelessness on gay youth. Advocacy groups in the nation's capital are still basking in the victory of the Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage.
