Celebrating SFAF’s own Black history
In honor of Black History Month, we celebrate the many individuals who have contributed to SFAF’s very own Black culture and history through our popular and well-loved community programs, including Black Brothers Esteem (BBE), established more than 25 years ago.
Compiled by staff member Traye Turner, these “spotlight interviews” give a personal look at what brought BBE community members to the SF Bay Area, what they’ve gained from being part of BBE’s vibrant community, and what the future of Black health should be.
Established in 1996, Black Brothers Esteem supports and empowers gay, queer, bisexual, same-gender-loving Black and African American men through community events and social support. Learn more about BBE or find out more about our entire suite of Black Health programs including HUES, TransLife, and Ibeji.
