A new documentary, Party Boi: Black Diamonds in Ice Castles, is hoping to shine a light on the growing crystal meth addiction within queer communities of color.
Filmmaker Micheal Rice turned his lens on young black and Latino people living in cities who have become disproportionately affected by the drug epidemic — and what can be done to help them.
“In the past four years, I’ve seen a steady incline of crystal meth addiction,” Rice said in the trailer. “I need to bring awareness to this situation.”
“You get so scared to the point where you don’t think that you can ever get back to that same person that you was,” one of the film’s subjects declares in the trailer.
The film’s New York premiere is tonight, May 7, 7:30 p.m. Eastern at the Image Nation Cinema. The screening will be followed by a cocktail Q&A, featuring speakers Michael Roberson, Christopher Johnson, Tia Carter, Michael Carter, and David Matthews.
