Gemmel & Tim

MKE Film Festival

In the span of 18 months, two gay Black men, Gemmel Moore and Timothy Dean, died at the West Hollywood apartment of white, gay, wealthy businessman, Ed Buck. A rare true-crime documentary that centers the victims and their (chosen) families left behind, GEMMEL AND TIM sheds a light on the exploitation of queer Black people in sex work.
