United Black Ellument (U-BE) is an organization dedicated to building Dallas’ community of young Black gay, bisexual, and same-gender-loving men. We are creating new ways for young men to come together, meet, socialize, and support each other. We provide alternative social events and opportunities for same-gender-loving men to promote our diversity, well-being, and strength as individuals and as a community. We create a safe environment to talk and encourage each other about issues that are important to us, including safer sex.

UBE B.L.A.C.K. Honors Nomination Form

In 2009, United Black Ellument (UBE) set out on its mission to mobilize young black same-gender-loving men in Dallas to build community, raise awareness about HIV/AIDS, advocate for a better tomorrow, and ultimately help them reach their greatest potential for good. The work of UBE is no easy feat and wouldn’t be possible without the help of many volunteers and supporters. “The B.L.A.C.K. Honors" celebrates those who have positively contributed to the mission of the United Black Ellument. Whether it is using their platform to help promote safer-sex education or lending their talents to various efforts, these people lead, inspire and motivate the communities served by UBE to be the change they wish to see. We ask that you nominate someone who you feel embodies the mission of UBE and works tirelessly to empower young Black same-gender-loving men in Dallas to reach their greatest potential for good.
