This year has already started off busy as ever. My blogging has definitely taken a hit but I assure you I am not out (rather just trying to get the word out about Pozlife). Tomorrow I will be flying in the skies above again and touching down in Atlanta, Georgia for the 2014 Policy and Advocacy Summit, which comes via the Young Black Gay Men’s Leadership Initiative.
Alongside 55 other young Black Gay, Bisexual, Same Gender-Loving Men (MSMs) we will spend 2 and 1/2 days of an great opportunity. The summit will have over 12 sessions ranging from the Affordable Care Act and its impact on young Black gay men to how to survive as a young Black gay professional. This summit in my opinion definitely helps to address many issues that Black gay men are dealing with, and plant the seed for more continued invest by Black gay men to be better leaders in their communities.
There will also be a Twitter Town Hall t to ensure all who cannot make it are included and to spread awareness on the topic at hand which is the portrayal of Black gay men in media. The Twitter Town Hall will be held on Thursday, April 3, from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m. (ET), as part of a panel discussion with a live audience. Twitter users can join this conversation using the same #ybgli . Online viewers can watch the panel discussion via visiting YBGLI YouTube Channel for a live feed. So tune in and continue to keep an eye out on my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for content and information.
