DREAAM Project

Our name, Determined to Respect and Encourage African American Men (DREAAM), embodies the values of our program. We welcome gay, bi, transgender, queer, questioning and intersex (GBTQQI) young men of African descent, ages 30 and under.

With the DREAAM Project, self-expression is encouraged. We don’t judge you for your body image, mannerisms, experiences, education level, or socioeconomic background. Respect starts within ourselves and the ability to take bold steps in the future starts with feeling supported now.

We create space for DREAAM leaders to build community, affirm and support each other, and connect to resources through programs and services.

Free HIV/STI testing, therapy and links to services and medical care are available. DREAAM is judgment-free because when you’re here, you’re home.
