Black Gay


2017 CBGP Theme: Just Be...

In a society where you’re constantly bombarded with images of how to dress, how to look, how to think and how to react to news and events that impact your world, we invite you to take a moment to stop and “Just Be”. You fill in the blank of what comes after that…

Just Be… Intentional

Just Be… Brave

Just Be… Powerful

Just Be… YOU!
