FREE HIV/STI Testing on Tuesday Feb 15, 2022

February 7 was National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD), a day to celebrate progress in HIV prevention, reduce HIV stigma, and encourage HIV testing and treatment among African American people.

While the date may have passed, it's not too late to take care of yourself.  The LOFT also offers free HIV/STI testing on every 3rd Tuesday of every month. The next testing day will be February 15.

Ugh. Here We Go Again: Gala Date Change

We are moving the Gala once more from Saturday, March 12, 2022, to Friday, September 30, 2022. Seriously, we feel you 1,000% with the frustration and disappointment. 

We've been on top of all the important health reports and the guidance being offered says that if the Omicron decline continues, September will be one of the very best times for an event like the gala.  


LGBTQ+ Black Leadership Panel Discussion


In celebration of Black History Month, The LOFT is hosting a leadership panel on the future of Black LGBTQ+ Leadership.

Come and listen to local Black LGBTQ+ community leaders address some important questions: What is needed to ensure the growth and empowerment of LGBTQ+ Black leaders? What are the social issues that need to be addressed? How can the broader LGBTQ+ community participate in this empowerment?

Free, all welcome to attend. The event will be taking the place of the LGBTQ+ People of Color Peer Support Group.

Share The Love | A Virtual Social Gathering


Please join us on Zoom on February 12th at 11:30 AM EST as we *virtually* share a meal together. Eat what you have at home, have some coffee, or just join for conversation.

All are welcome. This is an inter-generational program of Silver Connections, all ages (18+) are welcome.
