SWAG

Sexual Wellness and Growth

Building upon valuable lessons learned from BlaqOut’s pilot Let’s PrEP! intervention, and with considerable feedback and input from program participants and Community Action Board (CAB) members, BlaqOut has adopted and adapted the Sexual Wellness And Growth (SWAG) curriculum developed by the Interdisciplinary Sexuality Research Collaborative (ISRC) at the Center for Human Sexuality Studies at Widener University. Through this programming, BlaqOut is endeavoring to reach two distinct but equally important audiences: community members and Client Experience Contributors (CECs), such as medical and mental health providers, clinical staff, peers, social service personnel, etc.

Education for Professionals

For Client Experience Contributors (CECs), SWAG lessons focus on developing the knowledge and skills to help CECs better serve Black gay and bisexual men.
