Fierce Love: Stories from Black Gay Life (1994) Courtesy of the artist

Fierce Love was conceived, written, and performed as a response to the absence of three-dimensional black, gay men on the American stage. The show premiered at Josie's Juice Joint & Cabaret in San Francisco in January 1991, and went on to tour nationally and internationally to critical acclaim until 1994 (Brian Freeman revived the show with a new cast in 2010). This recording marks the final performance by the original ensemble cast of the Pomos--Djola Branner, Brian Freeman, and Eric Gupton--and includes a post-show discussion.
