Group support is at the foundation of our model for emotional health and wellness and Black Brothers Esteem (BBE) has pioneered support groups that respond to a range of physical and mental health and substance abuse concerns.

The Weekly Drop-In Support Group for African American men who have sex with men, and gay or bisexual, gender variant, and same-gender loving men is a place to build community with other members, reduce isolation, share concerns, and discover new perspectives.

BBE is a psychosocial support program for African American men who have sex with men, gay or bisexual, gender variant, and same-gender loving men who are at risk for HIV transmission. BBE brings together men who are interested in sharing their experiences, exchanging ideas, and uplifting one another.

Join us to share your thoughts, make new friends and find your community. It’s even better when you’re sharing in it with those who know you best.
