Event Details

Join us for a reception and community performance to hear personal stories of redemption, survival and hope from three Black gay men impacted by the HIV epidemic, as Black Brothers Esteem and San Francisco AIDS Foundation celebrate San Francisco Pride Weekend 2015.

Presenters worked with performance artist Anthony Julius Williams, artistic director of the Iruke Project, during a six-week workshop that employs an arts-based approach to support gay, bisexual, same-gender loving, gender variant men and transgender individuals of African descent who are at-risk for or living with HIV. Stories will explore deeply rooted issues such as shame, stigma, isolation, internalized homophobia, and transphobia.

A Personal Storytelling Project featuring William Dean, Raephel Rogers, and Stanley Allison. Black Brothers Esteem is grateful for the support of Luggage Store Gallery and The Iruke Project.
