Gay Men Connect

GBGMC Strategic Plan Process – We want to hear from you!


Founded in 2018, Global Black Gay Men Connect (GBGMC) is a group of Black, gay, bisexual, and same-loving men forming a movement internationally to empower our communities, foster resilience against oppression, and initiate an ever-growing platform for our collective voices to be heard.

GBGMC envisions a world where all Black gay men are free from criminalisation, incarceration, violence, and where an independent Black, gay political power and Black self-determination will be recognized in all areas of society.

GBGMC has embarked on developing its first strategic plan and invites you to participate by taking part in this survey.

The idea of GBGMC started in 2018, we are still figuring out what our future looks like, and we are committed to making sure you have a say in our future. PHI, based in Kenya, is leading the process of developing our first-ever strategic plan.

They have created a survey to collect data from the global community.

We want to hear from you!
