The Future State of Black LGBTQ+ CONVERSATION SERIES –
Black, & Transgender – Part 1 Discrimination Among Black TransMen
Atlanta Black Pride stands by our mission of educating, empowering, and celebrating. This conversation is an opportunity to educate and empower Black Transmen. Being discriminated against in society is already an issue but to discriminated against among other Black transmen. The conversation will identify the issues among Black TransMen and the responsibilities and how to end this discrimination for the future of Black TransMen. This one conversation will not fix this issue but it is important to educate and empower the Black Transman to begin fixing it. This conversation is a safe space for expression with respect to others.
