Very unfortunate news to report from Detroit. A fast-moving electrical fire destroyed the R.E.C. Boyz Center, "considered one of the top five HIV prevention programs nationwide" targeting young Black men who have sex with other men, reports PrideSource.com.
No one was hurt in the August 17 fire but the center lost all of its HIV testing and counseling supplies, computers and client data. The staff are now sharing space with its parent organization, AIDS Partnership Michigan. The program offices were de-facto drop in center for young black MSM in Detroit's LGBT.
