This episode of Busy Being Black contains references to situations and substances some might find uncomfortable to listen to. Living in the fullness of our queer Black lives means learning to live in the messiness. This was a lesson I learned as I dealt with my emotional fallout after watching Micheal Rice’s documentary, #parTyboi. #parTyboi explores and exposes the crystal meth epidemic that is ravaging the queer Black community in the US, and the price we, as a community and as individuals, pay living beyond the margins. Micheal's documentary so clearly illuminates the spaces and places where black and white lives collide, and the attendant devastation that results from the purchase of Black bodies to satiate white desires.
