Jamal Sims, Director of WHEN THE BEAT DROPS - Premiering on Logo at 8p on 8/9 Making It Queer

    • Arts

We're launching our 3rd season with another incredible guest! Jamal Sims is a professional choreographer and a first-time director. We got to talk with him about his film, WHEN THE BEAT DROPS, which premieres on Logo Network tomorrow (8/9) at 8 pm!

WHEN THE BEAT DROPS follows a crew of gay African-American men as they pioneer the Southern-rooted underground dance scene known as “bucking.” Together with his crew of fellow gay African-American men, Anthony Davis, a heavy-set, Atlanta-born kid with a love of dance, helped grow bucking into a national movement, complete with fierce competitions. In the process, Davis created a haven for a generation of displaced black gay men.

It was an amazing conversation and we're excited for you to listen! Watch the trailer for WHEN THE BEAT Drops using the link below and don't forget to tune in tomorrow at 8 pm!
