Black Queer and Here


Native Son In Partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery and the Apollo

Native Son hosts a Black Queer Intersection Townhall to explore what it means to be LGBTQ in the Black community today. This dialogue will center the experience of Black queer folx in America and invite other members of the Black community to participate.

A panel of Black gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, and gender non-conforming folx will share their stories, challenges, and hopes for the Black queer community. Other members of the Black community, Black cisgender women, Black cisgender men, Black faith leaders, Black activists, Black scientists, Black politicians/policy leaders, Black academics, Black thought leaders, and Black social media influencers will be invited to participate in an intimate and in-depth discussion about the intersection of Blackness and queerness and what we can learn from each other to co-exist, survive, and thrive.
