On the Deeper Love Project

GA Voice - - Outspoken -

co­or­di­na­tors, came back to par­tic­i­pate in our first Deeper Love retreat. That was some­thing I did a lot, bring­ing in for­mer pro­gram co­or­di­na­tors back into the pro­gram. Also, Nasheeda and Ma­lik were such amaz­ing fa­cil­i­ta­tors. Even to this day, they are some of the best I’ve ever seen, any­where. But again, that’s the qual­ity of lead­er­ship Deeper Love pos­sessed. We be­lieved in what we did.

I worked in that role for about 4 years. I learned a lot about my­self and it shaped my world­view con­sid­er­ably. My com­mit­ment to com­mu­nity build­ing and cul­tural restora­tion has al­ways been tied to my vi­sion for so­cial change. As the clin­i­cal ap­proach to HIV pre­ven­tion con­tin­ues to in­form the land­scape, we must not lessen our com­mit­ment to com­mu­nity build­ing and place mak­ing for black gay men.
