This toolkit was published by the Black Coalition for AIDS Prevention (Black CAP).
HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS TOOLKIT:
This booklet was written for Black, African, and Caribbean youth who are questioning their sexual orientation and exploring whether they are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ). This booklet recognizes that the experiences of Black LGBTQ youth can be somewhat different and more complex than that of other LGBTQ youth. This booklet may also be for someone you know who is experiencing difficulties in speaking about these issues with family or friends. The information in this booklet gives some practical advice, and answers some of the questions you may be struggling with, as well as offer some answers for family and friends, too.
Black CAP chose to develop this resource booklet to help Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) Black youth and their families with the ‘coming out’ process. Black CAP also wants to support youth struggling with issues about sexuality, and who are feeling disconnected from the support of family. Black CAP recognizes that as a result of this isolation, homophobia, and rejection, many LGBTQ youth are at greater risk for HIV/AIDS and other sexually-transmitted infections.
