The Sum of Us is a Meetup dedicated to creating a safe space for black men who love men. Our meetings will range from purely social events like happy hour, paint and sips and game nights, to in depth conversations, facilitated groups and workshops, to special events, retreats and much more.
The most important thing about this Meetup is that it is not mine, it is ours! I have plenty of ideas for events, activities and venues and will gladly arrange things for us but I don't want to simply prescribe anything to anyone. I want everyone involved to be and feel involved, to make this group your own. What's important to you? What's your idea of fun? What are some conversation topics that interest you? Let's work together to build something we can all enjoy, benefit from and be proud to be a part of.
The primary target audience for this Meetup are black men who love men. However, there will be occasions where others may be invited to participate. So, even if you don't identify as a black man who loves men, don't worry, we got you too! This group is ours and at the same time, the people in your lives who are important to you are important to us so we'll make space for them. Our sum total is greater than our individual parts, so let's come together to be great and do great things.
