Codman Square Health Center’s X-Clinic is excited to launch the We Are Here: Community Campaign.
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 11 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.
“As a dark-skin black trans woman, I haven’t seen myself a lot in the media,” says Nya Lee. “And it’s important for all of us in this campaign to raise our voices and empower all trans & queer folks to access X-Clinic services. Especially being that they are in our community, designed for us, and are serving us.”
Codman’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.
