T'Ain't Nobody's Bizness: Queer Blues Divas of the 1920s
Several months ago I was contacted by Robert Philipson of Shoga Films in Oakland, CA. He wanted to use four of my Blues Chapel portraits in his film T' Ain't Nobody's Bizness: Queer Blues Divas of the 1920s. We agreed on a price, signed a copyright licensing agreement, and exchanged high resolution images for a check. Yesterday, my copy of the film arrived. My work is included in the film an on the DVD cover. I am so excited and happy to have been part of this project. The film has already won "Best Short Documentary" at the Out in the Desert Film Festival and was "Runner Up" for LGBT film at the San Francisco Black Film Festival, both 2013. It has an impressive line up of other film festivals in which it is to appear. I'm so glad "my girls" got to be in this great production!
