The mission of Chicago Black Gay Men’s Caucus is to advance health equity among Black gay, bisexual and same gender loving men by developing community-centered leadership and innovative programs.
Chicago Black Gay Men’s Caucus is a grassroots organization led by Black gay, bisexual, and same gender loving men, whose vision is a world where our community experiences complete physical, mental and social well-being.
This includes eliminating HIV within our community, which we define as preventing all new HIV infections and ensuring every man in our community living with HIV achieves a sustained undetectable status.
