As part of Govans’ celebration of Pride month, we are presenting a virtual conversation on June 26 at 7:00 p.m. on Zoom. featuring a panel of experts who will share information and insights about the health and well-being of Americans who identify as Black and LGBTQ.
According to the American Medical Association, about 40% of LGBTQ+ adults in the United States are people of color, including 12% who identify as Black. A recent report by the Williams Institute at UCLA found that Black adults identifying as LGBTQ+ are more likely to experience economic insecurity and face disparities in mental and physical health when compared with Black non-LGBTQ+ adults.
Join our panelists: Kevin Clemons-Meyers, Mark McLaurin, Merrick Moses, Andy Ross, Carlton R. Smith, Dr. Kalima Young, and moderator Rev. Elder Dorothy Parrish-Harris, as they discuss issues of past and current importance to the Black LGBTQ+ communities.
