A pioneering autobiography first published in the United States in 1995, Stuck Rubber Baby traces an initiatory journey at the crossroads of the collective and the individual, between the struggle for African-American rights and the intimate discovery of homosexuality.

Clayfield, a small town in the South of the United States in the mid-1960s. Toland Polk is a shy young white man. Thanks to his friends Ginger, Mavis, Sammy and Les’, Toland discovers the other side of the conventional world in which he grew up, and gradually comes out of himself to support the fight against the inequalities suffered by African-Americans. He also realizes that it is very difficult to discover himself as a homosexual.

25 years after its creation, as the struggle for gay rights continues and the Black Lives Matter movement grows, Stuck Rubber Baby provides a better understanding of the culture of a country where progressivism often faces fascist threats.
