LGBT Pride Month is celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan. As part of the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment's recognition of LGBT Pride Month, the YMSM+LGBT Center of Excellence would like to encourage you to visit our archived webinars, where you can learn more about the LGBT Community. We have webinars available on many topics, including:
  • Creating an LGBT Affirming Organization
  • Supporting Change for LGBTQ Young Adults
  • Working With and For Two-Spirit Individuals

Special two-part series: Model programs 


We are also proud to present a two-part webinar series featuring four model programs serving YMSM of color. The programs are SAMHSA Targeted Capacity Expansion (TCE) HIV grantee award winners, who will share their successes and lessons learned providing substance use disorder treatment and HIV prevention services.

June 23, 2017: We'll hear from Jorge Diaz from the Nuevo Amanecer/New Dawn program at Bienestar Human Services, and Wendell Glenn from the Alcohol & Drug Advocacy for Young Men (ADAM) Project at Behavioral Health Services. 

July 28, 2017: The second webinar features Donald Powell and Sean Underwood from Project Aspire at Exponents and Anthony Contreras from Getting OFF! at Tarzana Treatment Center.
