Tom Ross-Williams

We need art that gives queer people hope. If I feel this, as a queer white man, I can only imagine how it might feel for others across LGBTQI spectrum. For many other queer people who haven't been afforded the same visibility as white gay men, I'm aware stories like Moonlight are more than lynchpins of hope; they are art that save lives.
