Bucking, a dance style that originated from the majorettes of HBCU schools, has changed the lives of queer black men in the deep South.
“Bucking is a melting pot of all types of genres of dance,” said the late Anthony “Big Tony” Davis, the breakout star of the documentary whose story is shared with the world through the film. “You can see jazz, ballet, hip-hop…and the creative style of our own. It’s like gumbo.”
