To Live & Die in BK is a short comedy film about a queer all-Black household. Three roommates, Cyn, Seven, and Erykah, struggle to find a new fourth roommate that they can get along with… and someone who meshes with their leftist, anti-gentrification politics. Backs to the wall, they settle in with someone who turns out to be more than bargained for.

Shane Santana is a 2020 CCNY graduate with a B.A. in Creative Writing. For the 2017-2018 academic year, Shane served as the President of CCNY’s LGBTQ+ Open Alliance Club. Since 2019, Shane worked in the motion picture and film industry as a production assistant, second assistant director, and script supervisor for various projects and short films. In Spring 2022, Shane graduated with a Master’s degree in Directing from the NYC School of Visual Arts.

This event is made possible through the generous support of LaGuardia Community College and the New York City Council Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual Caucus.

Co-sponsors: The CUNY Office of Student Initiatives, The CCNY Alumni Association, CCNY LGBTQ+ Open Alliance Club, and the CUNY LGBTQI+ Council.

The City College of New York is a proud member of the CUNY LGBTQI+ Consortium.
