Resources

Listed, are several websites that I feel that people, particularly of color, whom have an interest in leather, improving/maintaining their overall health, and mental health will find of resource. All of these bases have been very reaffirming for me during my journey. Having come of age in the midst of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and having served in the military during ”Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” I feel that it is important that I, a gay man of color, promote the changes that I want to see and help further the journeys of those seeking positive self-affirmation.
