Documented: Gay Black Men & Depression

By on February 7, 2011

Many of us know of someone who is troubled, maybe even suffering inside. Perhaps you are suffering in silence. Many of us have watched from the sidelines as someone we know deteriorates before our eyes – he is unable to keep a job, maintain a relationship, appears disheveled,  no longer interested in things he used to enjoy, and he might even have developed a dependency on drugs or alcohol. Worst of all, he feels empty and hopeless. Perhaps you are that man now. 

Often a depressed person may feel helpless and desperately wants to remove himself from humanity. Maybe you know someone who took that option. Those who remain, often ask why. But those who experienced and overcame the relentless pain in their heads can identify, they say You Are Not Alone.” Depression is a serious mental illness that could have devastating consequences; it does not have to. It is TREATABLE!

You may or may not be Black or gay or you may be Black and you may be gay. But you may know someone who is Black and gay. In many Black families, in our communities, and in societies gay men exist, yet because of the silence imposed by culture, the homophobia, stigma, and discrimination many experience, Black gay men are living hidden, secretive, and unfulfilled lives. Shouldn’t Black gay men deserve to live wholesome and productive lives?

Check out the trailer right here for the forthcoming documentary, You Are Not Alone.” Courageous Black gay men are breaking the silence and a taboo in the Black community. They are speaking out about their depression. It is hoped that a Black gay man, through what he sees and hears in this documentary, could feel emboldened to know he is not alone, and find the courage to reach out for help.

Your support toward the completion of this documentary is requested. It would provide a resource and encouragement for other Black gay men, especially young Black gay men who feel imprisoned, are struggling with their sexual identity, and acceptance in a world that rejects them, to know You Are Not Alone”.
