African American men who are gay, bisexual and same gender loving are at a disproportionately higher risk for HIV infection. Black Brothers Esteem, or BBE, works to change that. It’s a prevention and support program from San Francisco AIDS Foundation to empower men who predominantly live in the Tenderloin/Polk Gulch and Sixth Street Corridor neighborhoods of San Francisco. These men struggle not only with issues related to HIV, but also with racism, addiction, poverty, homophobia, violence and marginal housing. Facilitated by our expert staff, Black Brothers Esteem designs activities and events to provide a place for African American men to gather and to gain support from each other. The goal: provide education, skills and enhanced social connections to reduce sexual risk-taking.

Are you looking for your people? Hoping to meet folks whose lifestyle and challenges are similar to your own? We all do better when we have a community, and those of us whose lives are impacted by HIV, or who are at risk for getting infected live longer, healthier, happier lives when we connect with those who understand and support us. This is why we host a wide array of community groups with activities all around San Francisco. Which community will you connect with?
