Silver Lining Project

Let Us Lend a Helping Hand

Through over 50 campaigns, including “Silver Skills” training cohorts, “Oba’s Roundtable” discussion groups, gatherings, educational forums and HIV acceptance campaigns, we have engaged over 100 members of the Silver Lining Project.

The mission of The Silver Lining Project is to create and maintain a safe space, both virtual and physical, where Mature African American men living with HIV can share, discuss and advocate for issues impacting our community.

We host meetings to present information, engage in community outreach, and host social events designed to enhance the lives of our members.

The Silver Skills Curriculum

The Silver Skills Curriculum is a workshop written and designed by black gay men over 50 living with HIV for black men over 50 living with HIV. The workshop is designed to inform, enlighten, and inspire you. Enabling you to conquer internal and external stigma. Our goal is to support you, and keep you whole while listening to your stories. When you complete this curriculum, our hope is that you will want to be more involved in advocating for yourself and your community. More importantly, we hope that you will THRIVE with no fear, having defeated internal stigma.
