‘Check It’ is about a about a gay African-American gang struggling to survive in one of Washington D.C.’s most violent neighborhoods. As one of their mentors says in the film, “The Check It is the only documented gay gang in America, maybe the world.” Being gay on these streets carries a dangerous stigma—and standing up for who they are is much more than an issue of pride for the Check It—they are literally risking their lives. It’s a deeply intimate portrait of five childhood friends—founding members of the gang—as they try to claw their way out of that life through an unlikely avenue—fashion.
The film is close to being finished, but could use help in securing funds to assure its completion. This is not just an amazing story but its also a good cause to help at-risk kids.
