Zoom info posted day of the event here.
Black mental and social health is important. Living inside Black masculinity means always being aware that your presence is a threat and having to work that much harder to heal the many layers of overt and internalized racism. Many of us continue to carry grief, anger, fear, and confusion without a place to process those emotions and thoughts.
Join us for a closed zoom session where Black butches, studs, and masculine identified people can connect. If you’re seeking community, feeling isolated geographically or psychologically this space is for you. Feel free to drop in at any point and introduce yourself. JD Fuller will facilitate the discussion and Michelle Dixon of the BUTCH Voices team will be present.
*In order to continue providing a safer space for the mental health workshops, check in for all sessions will commence 10 minutes prior to session start at 11:50am pacific time)
