“Living Your Best Black Gay Life” is the theme of the summit, which is designed to connect Black gay men and promote a better quality of life. The event is sponsored by Brothers of the Desert (BOD), a Black gay men’s empowerment group dedicated to philanthropy, volunteerism, mentorship, education, advocacy and social networking.

The summit is designed for Black gay men but is not limited to Black gay men only. Allies of the Black gay community are welcome to attend and support this event.

The day-long summit begins with breakfast and registration from 8:00 a.m. to 10 a.m., workshops and discussions will take place between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., and a free post summit social event that will occur between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Space is limited, and registration is required. A donation of $20 is suggested but no one will be turned away for a lack of funds. Breakfast and lunch is included.
