The film Moonlight is extraordinary for many reasons, but to me it is most so for two. First, it considers black boys to be precious, at a time when news stories perpetually make it seem as if the United States considers them to be utterly expendable. Second, it acknowledges the effects that the stalking ghosts of premature death and incarceration have upon gay black masculinity — and it manages to do so without ever diminishing the lives full of complex humanity that black gay men still manage to have in America while navigating that reality. So often, gay lives in America are coded as white, and the forces that shape the lives of queer people of color — say, how immigration affects being Chicano and gay in Calfornia, or how police surveillance affects being black and gay in the New York — are ignored, as gay identity is usually swept up into whiteness.
