It’s 1995 and Ajamu, a Black Queer photographer, is staging his first one man show in his hometown of Huddersfield. He’s broke and his electricity is about to be cut off. How can he get there from London? On his journey he meets some friends and foes, including his best friend Michael and a hot homophobic guy who he cruises on the streets. There is insightful commentary by Stuart Hall and artist Sonia Boyce, as well as images of a Brixton long changed by gentrification and the influx of white people. Eventually Ajamu is escorted by a handsome chauffeur and ultimately is able to declare who he is and his place in the world.
