Bleeding Like Me is a love story where all the purity and beauty of first love has been buried by the heavy life circumstances of the antiheroes. Evan and Jackson are two flawed men from the streets of Chicago, who, for disparate reasons, became affiliated with violent gangs. Being gay on the South Side is perilous. Being gay in a street gang is unheard of. Being gay and in love with a man in a rival gang is a death wish. Through drug addiction, brutality, and seemingly endless peril, they remain; finding stability within each other that shouldn’t exist in their volatile world.
