Busy Being Black means we recognise we did not get here alone. Marc Thompson is a gay Black elder, an HIV activist and writer, and one of three founders of Black Out UK, a platform dedicated to amplifying the stories of gay Black men. In my first of two conversations with Marc, we discuss the gay Black experience in the 1980s, including the little known effects of the HIV crisis on our community. We also touch on the importance of intergenerational conversations, and our responsibility as a new generation of queer Black folk to pursue a connection with our elders, those who might better illuminate our path through the present. Busy Being Black is a podcast exploring how we live in the fullness of our queer Black lives. Thank you to our partners: UK Black Pride: http://ukblackpride.org.uk/ BlackOUt UK: blkoutuk.com Be sure to follow Busy Being Black: twitter.com/_busybeingblack instagram.com/_busybeingblack
