"Coming Out" Event at Hostos Tonight

 The New York Times' Sam Dolnick had a story today--in the wake of the heinous bias attacks that happened two weeks ago--about the hardships of being openly gay in the Bronx.

"Gay and lesbian residents said it can be especially difficult to be gay in the Bronx, given the macho culture of the street, the local gang codes and the rise of storefront churches that call homosexuality a sin," the story reads. Click here for the rest of the article. 

"The outer boroughs, areas outside of lower Manhattan, remain homophobic areas," said Brad Cauthen of Bronx Aids Services, which runs a 16-week program for gay men of color that focuses on sexuality, health and self-esteem. You can find out more about the program by calling them at (718) 295-5690. Here's their website.

There are other resources available to the LGBT community in the Bronx. The Bronx Community Pride Center and the Hispanic Aids Forum are two organizations worth checking out.

Tonight, Hispanic Aids Forum is sponsoring a "Coming Out" event at Hostos Community College's Repertory Theatre from 6-9 p.m. See the flyer below for more details.
