The B.R.O.T.H.E.R. Project
The B.R.O.T.H.E.R. (Brothers Reaching Out Through Health Education and Risk Reduction) Project is an innovative HIV Prevention & Education program designed for African-American/Latino men who have sex with men, whether gay-identified or not, who are at high risk for HIV infection. The B.R.O.T.H.E.R. Project has three components:
If you or someone you know is African American, gay and HIV-negative, or if you’ve never been tested before, then this is the group for you! SEXsponsibiltiy* is an intensive multi-session group workshop designed to address all types of topics that help you stay healthy, such as sex and relationships, homophobia, racism, and cultural/social/religious issues. (*Approved curriculum used is Many Men, Many Voices, or 3MV.)
- HIV Rapid Testing
As more young men of color engage in risky sexual behaviors, it’s even more important to know your status—whether or not you are HIV infected. The AAOGC now offers in-house HIV Rapid Testing. In as little as 20 minutes, you can get tested and find out your results in the privacy of our office. While no appointment is necessary, please check our availability, as we often offer off-hour testing.
- Food For Thought Sunday Socials
How about dinner and a movie? This group features stimulating discussion around a topic identified from a particular film or video. It may be a four-hour event on a Sunday afternoon, but who knows? The after-effects may be timeless!
T.G.I.F. Peer Advocate Project
The T.G.I.F. (Thank Goodness I’m Fabulous) Peer Advocate Project is here to provide young African-American and Latino Transgender girls a safe space, especially the “ballroom” and “sex work” girls. The T.G.I.F. Peer Advocate Project introduces and supports behavior change through community support, HIV/STI prevention education and safer sex information to reduce the transmission of HIV within these communities.
