The Real Impact Project (TRIP)
TRIP is a Philadelphia-based social initiative designed to raise awareness regarding sexual health amongst the African-American LGBTQ community. Through community involvement, unique events and activities, promoting self-empowerment, and rewarding positive leadership, the goal of TRIP is to reduce the impact of HIV. We go about that by providing free and confidential HIV/STD screenings along with producing cultural/ inspiring events aimed to strengthen Philadelphia’s LGBTQ community of color.
