#ThisIsLuv - Multimedia Campaign

Hey BlaqOUT Conference,

I wanted to share with you some resources for those who work with and/or support LGBTQ communities of color. This month, Darnell Moore and Wade Davis launched an exciting multimedia campaign called #ThisIsLuv, designed to highlight stories and images of acceptance and love for LGBTQ people in black communities. The campaign stretches across Ebony, Tumblr and the Huffington Post.

Some of the writings include:

"How My Dad Became a Queer Black Feminist" by Alexis Pauline Gumbs.

"They Loved Me as a Daughter, They Love Me as a Son" by Tiq Milan.

"A Black Bisexual Manifesto" by Crystal Fleming.

Finally, here's a link to a HuffPostLive conversation with some of the people involved in the campaign!

In solidarity,
BlaqOUT Planning Committee
