Episode 005: Shades Of Being A Dual Minority – Black and Gay! – Guest: Akil Campbell

Hailing from the tropical isle of Jamaica, Akil Campbell, Raleigh, North Carolina resident, Chair for Shades of Pride, and Advisory Member for the National Voices for Equality, Education and Enlightenment (NVEEE), brings a heart felt perspective to being Gay and African American to the Coming Out Lounge.

Masterful in his endeavors to consistently give back to the community, Campbell, who holds a Masters in Public Health, has gained strength for living his life “out and proud” by fostering community bonds that address issues such as HIV/AIDS, diabetes, breast and prostate cancer, bullying, violence, and suicide in minority populations.

Often overlooked in the fight for gay rights, minority populations have unique struggles that will be explored during this powerful hour when we address the challenges and discrimination that individuals of color face as they come out of the closet and live in the LGBT Community and Society.
