A band of queer, self-described “raging, atheist, meat-eating, HIV-positive, colored terrorists” fight back against homophobic conservative politicians on the streets of New York City in Stephen Winter’s wild guerrilla satire. Calling out government apathy toward the AIDS crisis—particularly as it affected communities of color—CHOCOLATE BABIES blends exuberant camp and searing political anger into a radical statement of Black queer power.
