"FIGHTING INEQUALITY THROUGH COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAMMING"

Relationship Unleashed was founded in Memphis, TN 2014 by two passionate African American community leaders with the purpose to create social, cultural, and professional equity for members of the Black LGBTQ + community. One area in particular that we found problematic in Memphis was the continuous rise in new HIV diagnosis in Black same gender loving men and Black cis-gendered women.  

This was alarming because those folxs looked like my son, my brother, my sister and my friends. The city we love so much has been ranked in the top 10 in new HIV diagnosis for years. In order to help reduce the numbers we knew it was going to take the trust of the community to align with an agency committed to this change.  In Memphis, TN "People Living Positively" need and deserve an opportunity to thrive and live productively.  Since our meager beginnings in 2014, the work to end the stigma and existence of HIV has become a labor of love, where we regularly use personal (out-of-pocket) funding to ensure the community have the proper services they need. We put a lot of thought and actionable efforts into how we wanted to enter into the nonprofit sector. One pillar of our distinction would be "if we were for the people then they should be out front leading."  In order to achieve this we had to be intentional about employing and empowering trans-gendered and same-gender loving folxs. We also intentionally center our services on intersectionality and addressing social constructs of health and wealth through our comprehensive educational programming.

ADVOCACY

Make Us Better

Unleashed Thursday's Live Stream on Facebook
Memphis, TN
CST 7 pm until 8 pm 
Unleashed Thursday's has become our primary virtual space to centering 
important discussions of our Healing Cypher Project.  At the beginning of 2020 the entire world declared a pandemic due to the invasion of the Coronavirus. The impact of this virus has crippled all aspect of normalcy in our daily lives. Individuals with HIV/AIDS are deemed high risk to succumb to this infection. The sheer trauma has created an unforeseen public health "Mental Health Crisis!" In response to these new challenges we launched our live streaming show via Zoom to Facebook to reach our community with impactful services.
