Launch: BlackOut Queer MenZ



, , , ,

It’s time we passed the mic to a new generation – Generation Z it’s your turn


BlackOut is committed to amplifying the voices of all parts of our community – including younger voices. We all benefit when we can share our experiences and learn from each other, so we are inviting

  • Black men and those who define as non-binary, who are
  • Gay/Bi, Trans, Queer or Questioning, and
  • born after 1997,

to create new spaces and connections together.

We’re here to support you; to help find the resources that will make it easier for you to meet each other, to work with you to further develop your skills, and to listen.

We’ve launched BlackOut Queer MenZ as a start, and planned a couple of events that we hope you will enjoy so you can meet others and define how the network should operate. Then it’s over to you. We’ll help you make the network strong and sustainable so that you can support each other and create the future together.

We look forward to welcoming more of you to the BlackOut family.
