Straight out of San Francisco’s Castro District, Pomo Afro Homos (Postmodern, African American, you know the rest), the badass brothas of queer performance rocked Dance Place in the 90s. Two decades later, Pomo co-founder, writer and director Brian Freeman remixes the company’s classic work Fierce Love with a fresh crew of San Francisco/Bay Area badass brothas.

Shining a light on Black gay life, the heart of Fierce Love is rooted in the early 1990s when it was created. While some of the pop culture references have been updated and a few new pieces have been added, including a hip hop number, many of the issues the show takes on have not changed in 20 years. As one of the few theatrical works exploring Black gay life, Fierce Love is still relevant in the US and beyond as the dialogue on race and sexuality continues to evolve.
