On July 6, The Chicago Black Gay Men's Caucus, in partnership with Rails Marketing Group and David Dodd Productions, presented the annual LoveFest at The Promontory in Hyde Park. This year's festival featured a brunch buffet; entertainment from Ms. Ruff N Stuff, Otis Mack and Flame Monroe; and beats by Darryl Garcon and DJ Superman.
In previous iterations, the event featured a health village; however, this year the focus was on socializing, with a separate event focusing on health set for later in the year. Chicago Black Gay Men's Caucus Executive Director Erik Glenn said, "We like to try different approaches to things."
Also, the Caucus will be launching The Prosperity Projecta three-year campaign to eliminate HIV among Black gay/bisexual and same-gender-loving men in Chicagoland. The project will target the underlying causes of the HIV epidemic by improving access to healthcare and reducing unemployment.
