Recently described as "The greatest cabaret artist of (v's) generation" by Hilton Als in The New Yorker, singer, songwriter and Tony-nominated performance artist Mx Justin Vivian Bond Justin-Vivian-Bond.jpgshared this VIP Q Movie Pick with us:

"I have found myself thinking about Marlon Riggs' film Tongues Untied a lot lately. I first saw it in the Castro Theater in 1991 and was deeply affected by its poetic, forceful and unflinching portrayal of the experience of men of color in America. As a feminine white queer I found it resonated very deeply with my own experience as well and continues to do so.

This amazing film deserves a fresh viewing not only for the political and social issues it addresses but more importantly, to me, for the haunting beauty of the words of poet Essex Hemphill."
