The Greater Than AIDS movement responds to the AIDS crisis in the United States, in particular the severe and disproportionate epidemic among Black Americans. Through a national media campaign and community outreach, Greater Than AIDS aims to elevate the public's knowledge and understanding of HIV/AIDS and confront the stigma surrounding the disease. Although national in scope, the effort is targeting communities most heavily affected, based on HIV/AIDS incidence and prevalence data.


The Black Gay Men's Network draws its strength from Black gay men around the world who are committed to creating soulful, loving connections with other Black gay men to transform our society, improve our health status, and make the social change we seek. The Network is a community of successful black gay men who unite their collective expertise, vision and creativity to provide leadership within the Black gay community and society at large. Our goals are ambitious, but attainable, and worthy of our ancestors' sacrifice.


Beyond the Quo is an advocacy and educational network for Black gay men who are infected and affected by HIV. It has the following goals: recruit, mobilize and sustain an actively-engaged network of HIV-positive Black gay men; create an ongoing, comprehensive database of local and national service organizations that support and affirm Black gay men; create an online presence that collects, generates and disseminates information as well as acts a space for interactive community engagement; create an online calendar that highlights events that target Black gay men; and facilitate online discussions and webinars that educate and inform visitors and participants. To accomplish these goals, BTQ utilizes a two pronged approach: online organizing and communication through social media, and ground level advocacy and engagement through a team of volunteers known as BTQ Officers.
