This is a meetup group that aims to empower the Black gay community in a range of ways but most importantly by building a positive and powerful image of the black gay man. This will enable black gay men to take more pride in themselves and to help shape the next generation.
We aim to do this by telling our own stories through various ways including music 🎶 , art, design, film , fashion, the ways are endless. We also want to build influence through the power of the Black Gay Pound. Gay people generally tend to have more disposable income than their straight counterparts, so why not use it wisely? Black gay people in particular tend to be quite good spenders and yet we hardly ever get the service we deserve and often face discrimination regardless. This has to come to a stop. We can put our community first by deciding on how we spend our money, who gets it and why, more about this in the meetings..
There are two main types of membership of the group. Type A consists of people with the skills set needed to further our agenda, e.g Film directors and Producers, Web Designers, Afro Hair Stylists and Beauticians, Relationship Experts, Musicians, Events Organisers, Artists etc willing to work with us. Type B is general membership that is open to all.
Who can join? Anyone with the interest of promoting black gay wellbeing. We are not a racist group, our agenda is simply to empower black gays as one of the most disadvantaged groups within the LGBTQ community and the wider world 🌎.
How do we achieve that? We will be hosting a range of events including date nights, workshops, relationship counselling, club nights, camping events, black fashion shows, the list is endless and members can also help suggest events. With the growth of our group the more events we will be able to organise. Our aim is to hold as many events as possible as frequently as possible in order to help keep us connected and to offer regular entertainment to the black gay community that is so obviously 🙄 lacking in our high streets.
