CAŌBA MEANS MAHOGANY IN SPANISH, AND MUCH LIKE THE MIGHTY TREE, CAŌBA PROVIDES
THE STRENGTH, STABILITY AND PRESENCE TO EXIST, THRIVE AND REACH FOR THE STARS.

CAŌBA IS A TRAVELING BI-MONTHLY SOCIAL EVENT, OFFERED FREE, WITH INSPIRING
SPEAKERS, TOPICS AND A SAFE SPACE FOR ALL SAME GENDER LOVING MEN OF COLOR.


77.3% Of Black LGBTQ Southerners Have Been Attacked Because Of Their Sexual Orientations.

We have failed many of our young men of color by not teaching them the things they need to know in order to grow into proud men, leaders,
partners and more.  Furthermore, the alienation of same gender loving men of color due to religion, false perceptions and ideas of
masculinity and virility, and the complete void of openly expressive and visible same gender loving men of color in our society, pushes this
divide to a breaking point. What is left is Men of Color who love men – and feel there is no place for them.


CAŌBA Informs and Enlightens Same Gender Loving Men of Color on Issues of Health, Wellness
and Prevention every 3th Thursday, every other month across South Florida, and helps to unite
and heal all communities of color from trauma, stigma and discrimination.

CAŌBA believes in the importance of sharing MOC’s stories with diverse audiences and knows Men
of Color are capable of greatness beyond our wildest imaginations & will strive to reset stereotypes
to achieve this.

CAŌBA inspires, celebrates, and empowers our Same Gender Loving Men of Color, and supports
them in becoming confident, intelligent, strong, capable.


Why do we need CAŌBA?
-        There are 42.8 HIV infections for every 100,000 residents in Miami-Dade and have continued to increase every year since 2012.
New cases last year totaled 6,240, the highest since 2002.
-        Stigma and lack of awareness often stop young people, Latinx/Hispanic & POC from getting tested for sexually transmitted
infections.
-        Access to accurate information and resources, language & cultural barriers, along with healthcare and prevention, is often
confusing and embarrassing.


_____________________________________________________


CAŌBA ES UN EVENTO BI-MENSUAL Y OFRECIDO GRATIS, CON ALTAVOCES INSPIRADORES, TEMAS Y UN ESPACIO SEGURO
PARA TODOS LOS HOMBRES HOMBRES DE COLOR, AMANTES DEL MISMO GÉNERO. COMO EL FUERTE ARBOL DE CAŌBA QUE
PROPORCIONA LA FUERZA, LA
ESTABILIDAD Y LA PRESENCIA PARA EXISTIR, LLEGAR Y ALCANZAR LAS ESTRELLAS – ESTE PRGRAMA REPRESENTARA TODO
ESO Y MAS PARA ESTA COMUNIDAD.

Hemos fallado a muchos de nuestros jóvenes al no enseñarles las cosas que necesitan saber para convertirse en hombres
orgullosos, líderes, socios y más. Además, la alienación de los Hombres de Color LGBT debido a la religión, las percepciones
falsas y las ideas de masculinidad y virilidad, y el vacío completo de los Hombres de Color LGBT abiertamente expresivos y
visibles en nuestra sociedad, lleva a esta división a un punto de ruptura. Lo que queda son los Hombres de Color que aman a
los hombres, y sienten que no hay lugar para ellos.

¿Por qué hace falta CAŌBA?
- Hay 42.8 infecciones por VIH por cada 100,000 residentes en Miami-Dade y han seguido aumentando cada año desde 2012. Los
casos nuevos el año pasado sumaron 6.240, el más alto desde 2002.
- El estigma y la falta de conciencia a menudo impiden que los jóvenes latinx/hispanx y gente de color, se hagan la prueba de
infecciones de transmisión sexual.
- El acceso a información y recursos precisos, barreras lingüísticas y culturales, junto con la atención médica y la prevención, a
menudo es confuso e incomprendido para alguien que no está familiarizado con su nueva comunidad.
