Join DBGM (Depressed Black Gay Men) at their benefit to raise funds for the completion of the documentary “You Are Not Alone”.  Many Black men, especially those with a same-sex attraction, do not have the luxury of accepting themselves as they are. Often, many have to hide and suppress who they are, living lives in shame, dealing with stigma, discrimination and homophobia, all which contribute to their suffering in silence from depression. So Please Join in supporting the benefit to raise funds for the completion of a documentary “You Are Not Alone” in which Black gay men share their stories of their struggle and suffering from depression.
