Structural Level Change/Project ALY: CAMBA's Project ALY consists of two components to promote structural change around family acceptance of LGBTQ youth: 1) an intervention that draws on a community identification process, the development and dissemination of role model stories, and group presentations and 2) a social marketing campaign. Both components utilize stories of acceptance from supportive parents and families of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth and teens in order to change underlying causes of HIV infection among this group. The ultimate goal is to promote parental and familial acceptance of LGBT youth, thus increasing self-esteem and self-worth and decreasing risk of future health or mental health problems including HIV infection and substance abuse. By encouraging parents and family members of LGBT youth to become role models and share their stories of acceptance, we will help break the silence, remove stigma, and motivate change throughout the community. Our program targets parents and families of LGBT youth, ages 14 to 26, in the Flatbush community, the majority of which are Black or Latino, and surrounding neighborhoods in Central Brooklyn.
