The Black Gay Research Group (BGRG) is a diverse group of Black gay men
committed to creating a platform for presenting, discussing, and analyzing scholarly
work being produced by and on Black gay men. Inaugurated in the Spring of 2001,
the BGRG has evolved from an informal discussion group to a structured group of
professional Black gay men who have accomplished a number of objectives:
(1) We hosted three Black Gay Research Summits (2003, 2005, and in 2010);
(2) We conceptualized a Black Gay Research Think Tank; and
(3) We developed a National Black Gay Research Agenda (2007).
