Circle of Life Celebration and Memorial

This unique community gathering held in Harlem, commemorates the lives and work of African descendant–LGBTQA/SGL youth, elders, and allies. All too frequently African descendant-LGBTQA/SGL persons are denied celebration, honor, and inclusion within a variety of settings, due to the marginalizing shadow of race, class, and gender divides. The Circle of Life Celebration and Pride Memorial addresses this by being a respectful and inclusive celebration that highlights how these lives have enriched us individually and collectively.
