COLLECTIVE SOULS’ GO BEYOND HOMOPHOBIA

A unity themed reception benefiting L.A. Black Pride follows homophobia conference
On Tuesday, March 23, from 9:30pm – 11pm, the social events group The Ebony Collective (TEC) will sponsor a post-conference benefit reception, entitled COLLECTIVE SOULS. This event will follow the provocatively themed conference, Flipping The Script: Beyond Homophobia in Black Hollywood, being held earlier that evening at the Writers Guild of America West. The reception will benefit Los Angeles Black Pride (LABP), the country’s oldest and largest African-American GLBT pride organization in the country.
Flipping The Script, organized by openly gay writer Demetrius Bady and moderated by award-winning actress Sheryl Lee Ralph, will tackle key issues regarding the portrayal of African-American gay and lesbian characters in film and television as well as the concern of homophobia in the black community and the black entertainment industry. The panel will include noted filmmakers Paris Barclay (The Good Wife), Quincy LeNear and Deondray Gossett (The DL Chronicles), and actor Brian White (I Can Do Bad All By Myself).
Immediately after the conference, TEC will provide a wine and cheese benefit reception for LABP, aptly titled COLLECTIVE SOULS to convey the social group’s theme of unity. “COLLECTIVE SOULS’ purpose is to end the evening on an inspirational note. We wanted to gather attendees of the conference to recognize the numerous important contributions LABP has made to our community to combat both internal and external homophobia,” says TEC.
Founded in 1988, the non-profit LABP has a longstanding history of combating homophobia, providing L.A.-based events and programs throughout the year to the African-American GLBT community. The event sponsor, TEC, is a small social group, aimed at providing fun and safe social events in an effort to support the gay black male community.
This event is open to the public, with suggested donation for entry (all proceeds go to LABP).
WHAT: COLLECTIVE SOULS, a reception benefiting LA Black Pride (after FLIPPING THE SCRIPT @ WGA)
WHEN: Tuesday, March 23 from 9:30pm-11pm
WHERE: Sheddy’s Wine Bar, 361 S. Fairfax Ave., Los Angeles 90036 (323) 651-1442

NHOJJ HITS #1 ON MTV MUSIC TOP 100 CHART!


“Love” the music video, by independent recording artist, Nhojj climbed to the #1 spot on MTV Music's Top 100 chart. Nhojj says "This is a dream come true! – “Love” has also been the #1 rated and the #1 commented video.
This is really an inspiration to continue living my truth."

The video was initially rejected by a smaller music site due to its homosexual content. However, Nhojj remained true to his craft and later saw it soar at MTV. This is just another example of why it is so important to live authentically and stand in your light!

Congratulations Nhojj! See Nhojj's original interview on 3LWTV, click here

PLEASE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT NHOJJ AND OTHER INDEPENDENT ARTISTS! THAKN YOU!
