CommUNITY Voices

Sponsored by ViiV Healthcare

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation, in partnership with Emil Wilbekin and Native Son, is excited to announce the relaunch of CommUNITY Voices. In their mission to end the HIV epidemic, ViiV Healthcare continues to develop and support sustainable community programs — with and for the HIV community — focused on education, treatment and prevention and access to care. We are pleased to announce ViiV Healthcare as our title sponsor of CommUNITY Voices.

CommUNITY Voices is a series of national and community-based panel discussions centered on the lived experiences of Black gay, bisexual and queer men. The discussions explore the notion of “Black Boy Joy” while addressing the unique challenges the community faces. Over the next year, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, Native Son and ViiV Healthcare will host virtual discussions in communities most affected by HIV: Atlanta, Georgia; Dallas, Texas; Cleveland, Ohio; and Nashville, Tennessee.

Join us on Thursday, March 4, 2021 at 7:00 PM (ET) as we discuss the acute impact of COVID-19, HIV and substance use on Black gay men and the overall mental health of the community.
