    I’m so proud of Moonlight & everything it has accomplished in such a short time. This film is so important for all America including the black community to see the life & struggles of a lot of Black Q**** people And I wish them all the best at tonight’s Oscars. #BestPicture P.s Trevante is so s***!!! Lol

    Moonlight was a great coming of age story focusing on black youth discovering manhood for ALL that might mean — toughness, dominance, sexuality, honor. We saw a real bond, both sexual and emotional, between Kevin and Black that held true for more than a decade after their characters parted in the film, but it was clearly true that some of the other boys in the film were struggling with issues concerning sexuality too.
