Millennia Scope Entertainment Foundation Collaborates with International AIDS Healthcare Foundation

Share Article

Inner-city LGBT youth experiencing HIV/AIDS can share their stories - AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) provides grant to Millennia Scope Entertainment Foundation (MSEF) to fund its Inner-City LGBT Youth Project.

Shahid Manning, Executive Director of Millennia Scope Entertainment Foundation comments on the importance of using film media to tell the stories of the gay community.

The first step to social change is to see and know there's a problem. To that end, I believe that telling the Gay community's stories in Film and visual media are powerful vehicles to help eradicate homophobia.

MSEF collaborates with international nonprofit organization AIDS Healthcare Foundation - effective immediately.

The Foundation received grant funding from AHF to create the “Inner-City LGBT Youth Project” to produce Public Service Announcements through the unique lens of four inner-city homeless LGBT youth in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles and Atlanta about their personal or observed experiences with HIV/AIDS.

This program will raise awareness through peer-to-peer messaging in a way that utilizes one of the most successful platforms for youth communication social media and traditional marketing avenues.
