T'AINT NOBODY'S BIZNESS:

Queer Blues Divas of the 1920s

NARRATED BY JEWELLE GOMEZ DIRECTED BY ROBERT PHILIPSON

Blues history through a lavender lens

Who knew that the most famous blues singers of their day, Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, and Ethel Watrers were bisexual? Or that Alberta Hunter was a lesbian? Their lovers did, and now you will too. "T'Ain't Nobody's Bizness" recaptures our lost and suppressed past about the queer sexualities of these pioneering divas. Narrated by the well-known Black lesbian poet and novelist, Jewelle Gomez, this documentary teaches Black queer history with “lots of flash.”
