Although born in Sacramento, California, Dustin grew up in San Antonio, Texas and later Salinas, California. His parents are Mormons, and his mother remarried to a Mormon priest. Dustin apparently started questioning his sexuality when he was six or seven years old, and was extremely wary of coming out in his teen years, due to the Mormon background and their beliefs.

He went to North Salinas High School, and while there started to work at The Western Stage theatre in Salinas-Monterey, California. Little by little he improved, and got the chance to work on the production of “Bare”, at Hollywood’s Main Stage Theater. Following high school matriculation, Dustin continued to learn about film by enrolling at the University of California, Los Angeles, School of Theater, Film and Television (UCLA), finishing with high honors.

Four years after graduation, his career was set to start; he wrote and directed the gay romance film, entitled “The Journey of Jared Price” (2000), starring Corey Spears, Steve Tyler and Josh Jacobson, which received positive critiques and inspired him to continue the way he started. His next accomplishment was the short coming-of-age film about a gay boy, entitled “Something Close to Heaven”. His next successful venture was the film “Pedro”, a biographical drama about Pedro Zamora who was the first HIV-positive homosexual to feature on MTV, and received a Writers Guild of America Award nomination. Dustin then took a step further by writing screenplay for the biographical drama about Harvey Milk, an American gay activist. He conjoined with Gus Van Sant, and the two created the film “Milk” (2008), for which Dustin won an Academy Award in the category Best Writing, Original Screenplay, then Paul Selvin Honorary Award by Writers Guild of America, and a WGA Award in the category Best Original Screenplay. Thanks to these successes, Dustin’s net worth increased to a large degree.

Dustin then changed his focus, as he wrote and directed the film “Virginia”, released in 2010, continuing with the script for the film “J. Edgar Hoover” (2011), directed by Clint Eastwood, and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Naomi Watts and Armie Hammer. His most recent creation is the TV mini-series “When We Rise”, centering on the gay rights movement in the USA, in the late ‘60s.

Regarding his personal life, Dustin revealed himself as gay in his senior year in college. Since 2013 he has been in a relationship with British diver Tom Daley; they have been engaged since 2015 and live in London.

In 2009, he was named by The Advocate as the No. 1 openly gay influential person in its list “Forty Under 40”, for June/July that year, and appeared on the magazine’s cover.

# Quote
1 [on J. Edgar (2011)] I try not to consider casting when I’m writing – especially a biopic like this, when I don’t have the opportunity to meet the real guy. It’s enough work to try and figure out who he was and get a handle on how he might’ve been, how he might’ve talked, the things he might have been thinking, his behavior – you know, all that’s tough enough.
# Fact
1 In December 2013 it was revealed that Black was in a relationship with British diver (and Olympic bronze medalist) Tom Daley, twenty years his junior.
2 In 2010, he was elected to the Board of Directors of the Trevor Project, a national crisis and suicide prevention organization helping lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or “questioning” young people who are facing familial rejection or considering suicide.
3 Longtime best friend of Drew Kuhse.
4 Is a former Mormon.
