Apicha CHC & The Arts 

Apicha Community Health Center is excited to announce the continuation of its series, Apicha and the Arts, where we team up with other organizations in our community to create special events tailored for New York City’s LGBT communities, people living with HIV/AIDS, and people of color.

At these events we will enjoy the work created by our communities and learn about new ways to stay healthy to ensure we keep making great art like PrEP—the latest tool to prevent HIV transmission.

It is our hope that these events will provide a space for these communities to come together, celebrate our work, struggles, and achievements, and, most importantly, inspire one another.


These events are sponsored through a grant from the New York State Department of Health’s AIDS Institute.

 

 

Who Are the Other Boys NYC ? 

 

              Meet The Producers

Producer Abdool Corlette,maxresdefault-16.jpg the creator of the docu-series, and his co-producer Adam Vasquez bring to us the powerful exploration of what it means to be a queer or transgender man of color. 

They met while studying at the  School of Visual Arts. Corlette works as the Video Production Manager at GLAAD and Vasquez  the Managing Director of Blue Jean Studio. 

Both producers are interested in film as a tool for social change and have clearly used it brilliantly in Other Boys NYC. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with them to make this event happen and feel blessed to witness the powerful representations that Other Boys NYC brings to the world.

& The Other Boys 

Other Boys NYC comes at a time in which race, sexuality and gender identity are hot button topics discussed in politics, the media and homes around the world. The series aims to inspire empathy and discussion through taking an intimate look at those topics as well as others like dating, family, masculinity, socio-economics, religion and career.

All too often the default portrayal of men within the LGBTQ community is cisgender, gay and white. Like the greater world, the LGBTQ community is one that cannot be represented as a singular thing. It is an intersection of people from all races, cultures and religions.

Other Boys NYC presents a more inclusive and accurate picture of what it looks like to be a man of color within the LGBTQ community. This new series offers a dynamic view of humanity that will propel forward the dialogue around race, gender, and sexuality.

Filmmakers Abdool Corlette and Adam Vazquez produced the series to accurately reflect their experiences as queer men of color in the media.
