Black Dandies Fashion New Academic Identities
“Stylin’ out.” That’s how Monica L. Miller, an associate professor of English at Barnard College, describes the way black people have used dress to expand definitions of blackness, gender, and sexuality. Men in particular have “styled their way from slaves to dignified human beings,” she writes in Slaves to Fashion (Duke University Press, 2009).

LGBT Mentorship through the Hispanic Black Gay Coalition — BE A MENTOR!
The HBGC Mentorship Program pairs LGBTQ professionals of color with LGBTQ students of color. Our mission is to help students of color develop a positive LGBTQ identity while successfully adapting to college or professional life. LGBTQ mentors work to support students in a safe, caring, one-on-one relationship while mentees work on their personal, social, academic, career, and life goals.
Launched in 2010, the HBGC Mentorship Program initially started through a partnership with MIT’s Rainbow Lounge. In 2011, the program expanded beyond MIT students to serve any student between the ages of 16-21 looking for guidance from an LGBTQ mentor of color.
The HBGC Mentorship Program is currently in its second wave, with fourteen mentor pairings. The next wave of mentor pairing will be in Fall of 2012. To express interest in being a mentor or mentee, please read below then contact Lizwe Nondabula firstname.lastname@example.org.
