BET profiles New York City-based LGBT and community activist Kenyon Farrow as a Modern Black History Hero. The executive director of Queers for Economic Justice describes why he went into activism: "I'm a Black gay man who moved to New York City with dreams of becoming an actor. And when I saw how my community was dealing with homophobic violence, with police brutality, HIV/AIDS, I knew I had to do jump in and fight."
The recent OUT 100 honoree adds: "I realized a long time ago that if I wanted to see change, I had to do something about it. I couldn't wait on anybody else."
Bravo and congratulations to Kenyon.
The profile aired last week on BET's 106 & Park. Only a few weeks ago the same show premiered Marsha Ambrosius' fantastic new video for "Far Away." Bravo to the network for producing some inclusive programming.
