Black Brothers Esteem (BBE) hosts a variety of activities to promote the empowerment, wellness, and spirituality of gay, bisexual, same gender loving trans/queer men of African descent.
We come together for weekly groups, enjoy monthly game nights and monthly outings (bowling, movies, plays, museum tours, concerts, etc...). We also host larger events such as BBQ's and retreats. Our annual Kwanzaa celebration, Friends and Family Day, and toy drive are also big hits! ...and yes, it's all FREE!
Brothers Who Read is a weekly reading group (that meets every Wednesday from 2-3:30pm). The group encourages and supports active reading, reading literacy and group reading.
Each book selected speaks to the African American gay/bi/trans experience. We hope to use this group to engage African American men in our communities on the power of reading.
