Thandiwe and Brian

San Francisco’s groundbreaking black performance troupe, Pomo Afro Homos, mixed theater, hip-hop, dram

a, dance, and comedy into a rich expression of African American gay life in the U.S. Short for Postmodern African American Homosexuals, the newly-revived Bessie-winning group performs Fierce Love (Remix), a jazzy mix of wicked humor and personal narratives exploring the joys, conflicts, pleasure,

pains, and contradictions of black gay life. An updated recreation of the group’s signature piece, the show brings together original Pomo Afro Homos writer/performer Brian Freeman with a new crew of performers.
