sensuous, FORBIDDEN ACTS, a film by Todd Herman, showcases three poems
by black disabled advocate and writer Leroy Moore. Herman's provocative
imagery seamlessly intertwines with Moore's explicit poetry and takes a
head-on look at issues of body image, sexuality and
disability--relative to politics, medicine, and race. With naked
honesty, Herman and Moore combine advocacy, social critique, visual
poetry, and spoken word while subtly addressing many of the stereotypes
prevalent in disability imagery. Forbidden Acts is an engaging glimpse
into Moore's exploration of his own sexuality and the limits that
social institutions attempt to impose upon its expression. It is a
potent film that ultimately sees beyond the barriers between disability
and sexuality, and opens new doors for the expression of sexual desires
and frustrations among our disabled brothers and sisters.
