There seems to be a lot of misconception when it comes to the behaviors of gay men; especially those who are African American. Based upon media depictions one would assume that Black gay men are either effeminite, on the Down-Low, or in interracial relationships. The lack of diversity is both frustrating and unfair. To add to the irrititation Oxygen network is set to air 'The Prancing Elites Project' which has created an uncomfortable debate within the Black gay community.
I have invited a few Black gay men to discuss media stereotypes, effeminite men, the need for more diverse imagery of Black gay men, and why they are accused of having internalized homophobia. You do not want to miss the discussion.

Should there be limits to free speech?
Only weeks after the demonstrations in support of freedom of expression for Charlie Hebdo, a French court has convicted three individuals for posting homophobic tweets.
The hashtag used in the tweets was "let's burn the gays." While there is no argument that the language is offensive and disgusting, should we begin placing limitations on free speech to exclude remarks of this type?
If so, who decides what the line for what qualifies as offensive and illegal?

Dr. King was invited to speak at Saint Peter’s Michaelmas Convocation by the board of trustees, with the main push coming from Jesuit Father Victor Yanitelli, the president at the time. Held at the beginning of the school year, the Michaelmas Convocation is an annual celebration honoring student and faculty with awards as well as featuring a guest speaker.Saint Peter’s awarded Dr. King with an honorary degree of Doctor of Laws and Letters. After receiving the honorary degree, Dr. King spoke on the evils of inequality and how segregation was in opposition of democracy.
When Martin Luther King visited the White House on June 22, 1963, President John Kennedy took him on a private walk in the Rose Garden and urged him to cut his personal and organizational ties to both Stanley Levison, a white businessman and lawyer who was a close confidant, and Jack O’Dell, a Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) staffer who had been hired on Levison’s recommendation, on the grounds that they were Communists. Levison had been a central figure in party financial activities. Not only was he the source of a big chunk of money bundled from Communist-leaning businessmen, he was also actively involved in laundering party funds.
A master strategist and tireless activist, Bayard Rustin is best remembered as the organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, one of the largest nonviolent protests ever held in the United States. He brought Gandhi’s protest techniques to the American civil rights movement, and helped mold Martin Luther King, Jr. into an international symbol of peace and nonviolence.
Despite these achievements, Rustin was silenced, threatened, arrested, beaten, imprisoned and fired from important leadership positions, largely because he was an openly gay man in a fiercely homophobic era.
