  • Deserved To Be Loved is the coming of age story of Rodney, a black gay teen, and Mike, his on the down low lover. Set in the brutal backdrop of 90's era New Orleans it follows the star crossed lovers as they discover not only each other but the tenants of their own sexuality. They must face the realities of a world that might not fully accept them. The harshness of the homo thug image and New Orleans housing projects is vividly painted in this fast paced no holds barred thrill ride laced in a love story. It feels so gritty and so real that it is nearly ashamed to be called fiction. Deserved To Be Loved delivers, with authentic dialog, fresh realism and a colorful cast.
