“Black Velvet” The Movie by Director Tobias Daniels Goes To Germany: A Feature Length Documentary about an LGBT artist and the Navy
CREATOR STATEMENT: I sought to tell a fly-on-the-wall story of an underground culture in New York, but discovered a story of acceptance and struggle told through the eyes of the films main character T-Boy. Through our journey T-Boy reconnected with his estranged family and faced demons and shame from his pre “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” stent in the United States Navy. The film asks questions that I hadn’t been willing to face myself. Does being gay today still ruin your career? Is there refuge for gay artists? At the core of Black Velvet is a narrative about hope and struggle told through the eyes of an artist.
However, we need your support to complete the film. Your contributions go directly to equipment fees, crew pay, and travel expenses for the cast and crew to fly to Germany and capture the films final footage this June in Berlin as T-Boy takes the stage live at Christopher Street Day.
