About Us

Who Are We?

BLAEQ is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization located in Phoenix, Arizona. In an effort to bridge alliances between people of color and their allies, BLAEQ was developed to support this fundamental goal emphasizing on the disparities in health and wealth. We are driven to help LGBTQ + people of color advance.

While there will be many opportunities to engage with us and learn about yourself, our annual and largest event to date has been, the URBAN INFERNO weekend experience. We are excited to share our vision for improving the health and socio-economical outcomes of this community.

To impact the health and the socio-economic well-being of the LGBTQ+ community for men of color through education, literature, and mentorship programs.

Our Vision

Improving the health and the social economical well-being of the LGBTQ+ community with an emphasis on people of color and their allies.
