Making Sweet Tea is a documentary film that chronicles the journey of southern-born, black gay researcher and performer, E. Patrick Johnson, as he travels home to North Carolina to come to terms with his past, and to Georgia, New Orleans, and Washington, D.C. to reconnect with six black gay men he interviewed for the book, Sweet Tea: Black Gay Men of the South—An Oral History. The film covers the complexities of Johnson’s relationships with the men, his family, and his hometown. Making Sweet Tea offers a glimpse into the lives of people rarely given a platform to speak, while also demonstrating how research, artistry, and life converge.
