With the increase in suicide attempts, particularly among young LGBTQ people of color, along with the increase in violence toward trans women and men of color, it is the goal of Me&MyBois to provide visibility and resources for this community to combat the negative stereotypes perpetuated in households, workplaces, classrooms, public restrooms and mainstream media. “The Boi Doc” utilizes dialogue to break the silence created by racism, sexism, gender-expression insensitivity, heterosexism, homophobia and transphobia.
