I’M WITH HARRISON
- DENTON BLACK FILM FESTIVAL
- 4.5 minutes
In 2019, after a 41-year history of the Houston Pride Parade, Harrison Guy became the first Black gay man to be the Grand Marshal of the parade. I’M WITH HARRISON tells the story of how Harrison became a central figure in Houston’s LGBTQ+ community and how he has brought to his leadership role the distinctive community-building skills he learned growing up in a small Black community outside of Houston. The film combines the celebratory pageantry of the parade with an intimate conversation with Harrison about the hidden cracks in the LGBTQ+ community and his vision for healing wounds and creating a vibrant community of choice in Houston, Texas.
