Depression in Black Gay Men

I remember a time when I was depressed – it was a time that I never ever want to revisit, and I hope no one has to endure. Depression is a disease that cripples people of all walks of life. Award winning Journalist Antoine Craigwell has been creating safe spaces for men of African decent to discuss and support one another.

On May 17 he will moderate a discussion “Being Black and Gay: Struggles with HIV and Depression” at Riverside church in New York city. If you live in NYC or know someone who does, please help spread the word… it may save a life.
