Being Seen is an in-depth exploration of culture’s role in resolving the tension between how we are seen and how we see ourselves. Focused on the gay and queer Black male experience, the first season of Being Seen is a space to explore these questions through conversations with leading artists, writers, activists, entertainers, and community leaders.
If we create nuanced and accurate cultural portrayals of identity and experience, we have an opportunity to reduce stigma and change perception - impacting everything from HIV to institutional inequality.
Being Seen was produced by Harley & Co. and Darnell Moore and created in partnership with ViiV Healthcare. Theme music is Colouour by Moses Sumney with additional music compositions from Subculture. Photography for the episodes was curated by Texas Isaiah and Gioncarlo Valentine. More information on each episode and the series can be found at beingseenpodcast.com
