Punks
Play • 23 min

Once upon a time, Kai Wright saw a movie called "Punks." A romantic comedy about black gay men, it was like nothing he'd ever seen before. But then it disappeared.

Kai Wright is editor and host of WNYC’s Narrative Unit and a columnist for The Nation magazine. Patrik-Ian Polk is the writer and director of Punks; he went on to create Noah's Arc, The Skinny, and Blackbird, and is now a producer and writer for Being Mary Jane. He is currently producing and writing the upcoming Starz drama series, Pussy Valley.

Special thanks to the ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives at USC. 

Episode scoring by Jeremy Bloom with additional music by Ultracat ("Little Happenings"). Theme by Alex Overington.
