2015 Series & Event: Rise Up!

It’s time to focus on new and better things for 2015 and taking what we started last year and moving it to the next level. Our One Shining Moment series are being used across the country as with current events where they are in the world, it is the perfect time to work on Phase II of the National Strategy For Black Gay Youth In America.


Our first series of the year will also become a national event in the summer of 2015 that will feature many of the people from our 50 Black LGBTQ Winners Who Are Helping Others Win and some of the young people they work with in their cities as well as young adult leaders of NYPS. This event will be held in conjunction with the Allied Media Conference, the premier gathering for activists of color, especially those in the LGBTQ community. More than 3,000 attended in 2014.

Join us as we take an intellectual, urban, creative approach to meeting the ever-changing needs of black LGBTQ people via collective partnership and the desire to not do things the way they have always been done.

In addition to the series and event, our mobile app will be reintroduced with our iPhone 6 update and many new features to help broaden our mobile reach. There are 6 billion people in the world and it is estimated that 5 billion people have a mobile device. Our app will allow people to Rise Up right from their cell phones and tablets in a way that has not been attempted before.
