Event description

Description

Taking place at the opening of 2019's DC Black Pride Weekend, this program will focus on the perceptions of gay people of color in both the mainstream media and among ourselves.

Historically, gay people of color, who sit at the intersection of race and sexuality, have been viewed negatively. However, this view usually comes through the lenses of external communities who attempt to define us and control the narrative. It is time OUR community begins telling OUR stories.

Our discussion will center on helping gay people of color establish who we are and how we want to be viewed.

Please join us as we hear from the best and brightest from various fields within OUR community, including leaders from academia, law, medicine, community organizing, and the media.

The Panel discussion will immediately be followed by a networking and affirmation reception, where we can connect and celebrate OUR community.

Though focusing on gay people of color, it is OPEN TO ALL PEOPLE.
