Ontario Black Gay Men's Summit--Cultures of Sexuality and Black Men's Health

Toronto, Ontario
March 26-28, 2010

Ramada Hotel, 300 Jarvis Street

The Summit is a free event for African, Caribbean, and Black gay and bisexual men, transmen and queer men from Ontario hosted by the African and Caribbean Council on HIV/AIDS in Ontario (ACCHO).

The Summit program will feature presentations, workshops and discussions on issues related to sexuality, culture, health, social justice and community.

The Summit is a follow-up to the MaBwana Black Men's Study of vulnerability to HIV among African, Caribbean, and Black gay and bisexual men in Toronto. Though some MaBwana participants were at risk for HIV, participants also understood themselves as agents of change rather than merely as victims of the epidemic. The Summit discussions will feature many of the issues raised in MaBwana, which are common to African, Caribbean and Black gay and bisexual men, transmen and queer men throughout Ontario.

Cultures of Sexuality and Black Men's Health promises to be an informative and empowering event for African, Caribbean, and Black gay and bisexual men, transmen and queer men from across Ontario.

A limited number of scholarships will be available for Ontario residents who are not from the Greater Toronto Area.

Registration will open on January 27, 2010. For information, write to gbtqsummit@accho.ca or visit http://www.accho.ca/index.aspx?page=events.
