In her feature-length documentary “black./womyn.: conversations with lesbians of African descent,” Tiona McClodden — Ms. m. — interviews black gay women from various backgrounds about myriad subjects. Ms. m. (which stands for McClodden, but everybody mangles it so she just goes by m.) is a multi-media artist whose mission is to make visible the invisible and humanize her subjects. McClodden began her career apprenticing on music-video sets and as a freelancer working with various production companies and nonprofit organizations. She hopes her work as a filmmaker and visual artist can inspire various communities by affirming their existence in contemporary society. We turned the tables on the filmmaker and asked her a few questions.
