T'AINT NOBODY'S BIZNESS:

Queer Blues Divas of the 1920s

NARRATED BY JEWELLE GOMEZ DIRECTED BY ROBERT PHILIPSON

Who knew that the most famous blues singers of their day, Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith, were bisexual? Or that Alberta Hunter and Ethel Waters were lesbians? Their lovers did, and now you will too. As part of recapturing our lost and hidden past, "T'Ain't Nobody's Bizness" presents the facts concerning the alternative sexualities of famous blues singers in a way that is unsensational yet entertaining. Many people will be surprised at how developed and robust alternative sexualities were 90 years ago. This documentary is narrated by the well-known Black lesbian poet and novelist, Jewelle Gomez.
