New Scholarships for Black Queer Men!
Kudos to George Johnson and Guy Anthony, the founders and CEOs of Black, Gifted, and Whole a new nonprofit initiative, on the launch of their scholarship program for black gay men to attend Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Black, Gifted, and Whole provides critical mentorship to young Same-Gender-Loving (SGL) and queer men at a crucial time when the fight for a quality education is at its peak.
“The reason we started BGW was to celebrate Black Gay and Queer men by affirming their whole selves. Not often do we see ourselves as whole people in media, in relationships, at work, or in family life. Black, Gifted & Whole is the organization I wish was around when I was learning how to love myself as a young man,” said Johnson in an interview with Ahmad Greene-Hayes for NewsOne.
Johnson and Anthony’s work gives us lots to celebrate at a time of resistance in the United States.
