We Are Here Podcast #3 – Trending Topics (Part 1)
In September’s We Are Here livestream, #LadyGerman and #AmandaShea discuss serious hot topics. They talk about celebrity fashion and performances and draw on the ways in which Lil Nas X forces the Black community to reckon with its internalized homophobia, especially towards gay, Black men. We want to hear from you. Join the conversation at www.codman.org/wearehere
We Are Here is a community-based multimedia campaign that features Black and Brown members of the LGBTQ+ community of Greater Boston raising awareness about health and wellness services, and helping to promote an empowered community through digital engagement. We Are Here features intimate portraits and interviews with members of the community talking about why Pride is important to them, what they would want to say to their younger self, and what having the X-Clinic in our community means to LGBTQ people of color. Codman Square Health Clinic’s X-Clinic employs members of the community and is advised by a community advisory board of LGBTQ+ POCs, which enables the health center to be what the community wants and needs.
