December 18, 2018 – Atlanta, GA – The Counter Narrative Project (CNP), a national Black gay men’s advocacy organization won the 2018 POZ Award in the Best Video Series category, for Revolutionary Health. “This is such an incredible honor. We are so very grateful for the support of our community,” said CNP Executive Director and co-host of the Revolutionary Health series, Charles Stephens. The Atlanta-based talk show also is co-hosted by the esteemed clinical practitioner and researcher David Malebranche, MD, who only one month before received a proclamation from the city of Atlanta for his local and national work in HIV.

Revolutionary Health features Black gay advocates, influencers, practitioners, and every everyday people engaging in real, often humorous, no holds barred talk about topics such as emotional wellness, PrEP, HIV treatment, spirituality, family, and joy. The range of topics is intended to counter the narrative by reflecting the range of Black gay male diversity and the myriad of issues and concerns of Black gay men themselves. In doing so, the series takes a more accessible, whole person view of health and wellness, particularly when it comes to those most impacted by HIV.

News of the December 10th award announcement was well-received by the entire CNP Revolutionary Health production team, including the show’s content curator and guest host, Johnnie Ray Kornegay III and Revolutionary Health director, Alvin Agarrat.
