This resource showcases African-American LGBTQ activists and provides resources on coming out across environments, systems, and individuals. For many African Americans, coming out involves additional cultural factors that make the process more challenging but no less rewarding. It includes having to deal with homophobic churches, strong family foundations that emphasize heterosexuality, homophobia in the black community, and racism in the broader LGBTQ community.
