Let me show you who I am for real

A poetic, visual journey exploring the complexities of identity and sources of empowerment, joy and belonging for Black, queer Seattleites.

In honor of Pacific Northwest Black Pride, we spoke to 10 black, queer Seattleites from different backgrounds about their work, their lives and their experiences in Seattle. In their own words, they talk about identity, safety and creating community in Seattle.

Directed, filmed and edited by Lauren Frohne
