As an openly Black Gay man, I have often found myself starved for fairer depictions of who I really am, in the media. Television has done our entire community a disservice by only portraying Black Gay men as accessories. Per the machine, we are merely relegated to #bestie, #fashionqueen, lace-front connoisseur or confused "down low" brotha'. In fact, we are MUCH more than the caricatures we've been privy to seeing on television. We are executives, policy makers, CEOs of our OWN companies, prolific writers, activists, artists, AND athletes. We are more than our sexualities and should be treated as such.
