The Long Island Gay & Lesbian Film Festival presented "The New Black."

This documentary tells the story of how the African-American community is grappling with the gay rights issue in light of the recent gay marriage movement and the fight over civil rights. The film documents activists, families and clergy on both sides of the campaign to legalize same-sex marriage in Maryland and examines homophobia in the black community’s institutional pillar—the black church and reveals the opposition's strategy of exploiting this phenomenon in order to pursue an anti-gay political agenda.

After the film there was a live Q&A with activist Karess Taylor-Hughes (featured in the film), and a post-film cocktail reception catered by Sur Argentinian Steakhouse of Huntington.

The film and reception were co-sponsored by the Long Island Community Fellowship (LICF).
