Brothers United is Indiana’s only African American AIDS Serving Organization that focuses on the LGBT Community. Annually, Brothers United provides vital services to over 2,000 families per year living in Marion County that are infected or affected by HV/AIDS. Brothers United will celebrate its 15th anniversary on Tuesday, December 1, 2015 (World AIDS Day) with a fundraising dinner, fashion show, and awards ceremony.
Brothers United will honor individuals within the Central Indiana community who have made a positive impact on the lives of LGBT individuals at its 15th Anniversary celebration. Nominations in the following categories are open to the community:
The Advocate Award: The Advocate Award is presented to an individual who has used his/her voice, platform, or position to advocate for the improved health and wellness of the LGBT community.
The Bravery Award: Disclosing your HIV status to one person alone can be a difficult process. Sharing your status with the world however is often unimaginable. The bravery award is given to a person living with HIV who has chosen to break the silence, shame, and stigma of being HIV positive by sharing their status.
Future Leaders Award: Youth hold the keys to unlocking the potential of the future. The future leader’s award is given to a young person within the LGBT community who demonstrates clear leadership and involvement with issues related to the LGBT community. (Individuals must be ages 13-25)
