Bumming Cigarettes is a short film about a brief and intimate meeting between a young Black lesbian woman who is in the process of taking an HIV test and a middle aged Black Gay HIV Positive man. Coming off of the devastation of a bad breakup with a girlfriend, Vee musters up the courage to go and take an HIV test to put her worst fears to rest. What she experiences during her trip to a local clinic is much more than she expects while sharing a cigarette with a stranger, Jimmy, during the 10 minutes that she awaits her test results.

Sistah Sinema is a monthly event showcasing Queer Women of Color Cinema. Each showing will be followed by a moderated discussion section.
Sistah Sinema was created to showcase the nuances of Queer Women of Color culture. It is hoped that the movies will serve as a vehicle to foster honest dialogue on struggles and opportunities unique to Queer Women of Color. While discussion will focus on Queer Women of Color, all members of the Queer community are invited to attend.
We started in Seattle, WA in early 2011 and expanded to Cleveland, Portland, Atlanta, and San Antonio (relaunching soon) in 2012.
