From Our Point Of View – new series focuses on Black Queer Male Identifying artists, activists, and community members
From Our Point Of View is a series cementing the voices, experiences, stories and journeys significant Black Queer Male Identifying artists, activists and community members, in collaboration with BGMN (Black Gay Men’s Network of Ontario). Hosted by Resident Choreographer of Canada’s Drag Race Hollywood Jade (Snoop Dogg, Meghan Trainor, Jully Black) and Executive Producer and Director Robert Ball, the show brings inspirational chronicles to life with a profound blend of emotional, interesting and at times humorous anecdotes.
Bringing his visionary excellence to life, Executive Producer and Director Robert Ball continues to thrive in his attempt to showcase true authenticity and creative eminence. Showcased and now streaming across “STRATFEST@HOME” (Stratford Festival’s streaming platform), From Our Point of View blesses viewers with discussions of life, sex, health, art, aspirations and pretty much everything in between! Spilling with insightful glimpses into the lives of a wide line-up of guests, Ball shares, “I continue to step into the authenticity of myself as a human being.”
In a host of episodes, host Hollywood Jade takes us into a correlation of conversation, with recent guests Thom Allison, a renowned name in the theatre space, and Marcus Nance, a multi-disciplinary who straddles the worlds of theatre, film and opera. Bringing to life the true artistry and passion they enthral, Jade and company take to the familiar comfort of the “FOPOV” studio. Nance shares, “I fought for who I was all my life. People think that if I’m black, gay, and over 50 theres nothing out there for me.” However, From Our Point Of View consolidates that with the sharing of professional paths, inspirational anecdotes and truly admirable tales, this series is simply and profoundly ‘Our’ conversations – stories we’ve never told, sharing our journey and a narrative “From Our Point Of View”
