George M. Johnson | The Writer

From riveting and thought- provoking pieces across multiple award-winning publications to his upcoming College Guide, GMJ is committed to writing to make a difference

"I am because someone else was. I will so someone else can be" -George Johnson

George is the Vice-President of Black, Gifted, and Whole.

Black, Gifted & Whole is a revolutionary attempt to change the collective narrative of Black gay men. Our mission is to empower, educate and mobilize Black gay men by acknowledging, celebrating and affirming their whole selves. We understand that solely focusing on the sexual behavior of these men has historically done them a disservice. Far too often, marginalized communities are left out of the equation when decisions are being made about their lives.
