"Whenever I use BLACK it relates to some history of Africans in that particular place. It’s the idea of the color BLACK as a metaphor, or as a representation of African-Americans. It’s the notion of BLACK- BLACKNESS - and all its other meanings in relation to the history of race..."

- Fred Wilson

"Most of my fortitude to continue doing the work comes from the moral outrage I feel about the injustices that Black people endure disproportionately daily."

- N. Abdul-Wakil

"In the end, what matters is not skin shade but pan-African consciousness. Loving your complexion, your nose, lips, hair length and texture, no matter what the politics or trends decide, and simply be. That's the problem with us (African folks). We're still learning how to love ourselves. So used to glorifying others and putting others first..."

Brooklyn, New York
Pride in The City

Brooklyn, New York; June 24, 2009 - “Pride in the City”, a celebration for the lives and culture of Black lesbian, gay, transgender, bisexual, and game gender loving individuals, will occur August 7 – 9, 2009. After a series of meetings with community members and stakeholders, National AIDS Education & Services for Minorities (NAESM) is proud to announce that plans are underway for the iconic celebration attended by thousands from across the United States and abroad. NAESM has taken on the task of ensuring that Pride in the City occurs this year.

The mission of NAESM is to educate communities of color on the facts about HIV/AIDS [education/prevention] and to make healthcare and social services available to people of color with early or advanced stages of HIV/AIDS regardless of their sexual orientation. Headquartered in Atlanta, GA, NAESM has provided HIV/AIDS services to black gay men for over nineteen years and continues to expand its services on a national scope.

The host hotel for Pride in the City is the Holiday Inn Express located at 279 Butler Street in (downtown) Brooklyn, NY (near the Atlantic Mall). Please call [718] 855-9600 and mention ""NAESM" for your special guest room rate of $139.00 per night.

Be on the lookout for more information later this week regarding partners, vending and sponsorship opportunities, and more information on the website, www.naesm.org. Additionally, we would like all community members to consider this as a formal invitation to get involved with Pride in the City!

As “Pride In The City” was cancelled in 2008, it was a loss for New Yorkers and Pride celebrants nationally. Although funding, which existed in past years, is no longer available, NAESM is committed to working with OUR community to create an enjoyable and memorable weekend. Come experience a refreshingly NEW and exciting Pride in the City celebration!
