I was awarded the Audre Lorde Founders award from The Hispanic Black Gay Coalition, an organization based in Boston that services lgbt people of color in the New England area. In the last five years HBGC has been able to reach hundreds of New Englanders who are often ignored and overlooked. Interesecting identity and the nuanced issues that it raises are at the forefront of their work. They create programming and access to resources that are tailored to these specific needs and it was an honor to be recognized by them.
Corey Yarbrough and Quincey Roberts, the founders of HBGC, are two of the kinds and hard working guys I've had the pleasure of working with. They're dedicated to the lgbt community of Boston and work tireless to give a a booming voice for lgbt people of color.
