b-boy blues gets a release date and i say “finally”

as you know,
during all this jussie smollett/subway-gate mess,
i’ve been more concerned with “b-boy blues“.
that is one of my favorite “coming of age” books i read.
with all the mess happening with jussie,
it overshadowed the book’s movie adaptation.
since his recent down time,
he seems to have been working on a way for us to watch.
the foxhole alerted me on when to set my reminders app…

it will be on bet+ on june 9th!
thank GOD.

i’m excited about this drop as much as i know some of you are.

  1. I just read the entire series, I read it when I was a teen but couldn’t finish it because my dad didn’t like the obviously queer covers, so I was very excited to see this hopefully I can.

  2. I just hope that this body of work gets the recognition it deserves. I’ll most definitely be tuning in

    1. I just hope Jussie ain’t fuck this up. I will reserve judgement until I watch it though. Fire Island is up on Hulu too. Pride month bringing us some must see tv.

      I low key feel like this could have been another Moonlight phenomenon with a different director.

  3. Happy that the film is getting a chance. Hated to think it would be in purgatory because of Jussie’s mess…

  4. I saw the premier when it screened online and wrote in the comments here that Jussie and his team did a great job. It’s so sad this film, which presents a loving Black gay relationship, was overshadowed by Jussie’s alleged hoax debacle. But I’m glad it’s finally going to be more widely available, and I hope we see more of James Earl Hardy’s and other Black gay authors’ books turned into films and series!

If you wouldn't say it on live TV with all your family and friends watching, without getting canceled or locked up, don't say it on here. Stay on topic, no SPAM, and keep it respectful. Thanks!
