Black Gay pride was born out of a small number of friends in Los Angeles in 1988 later to be known as ATB "at the beach" who knowing and understanding the much stronger rejection of the larger black community due to strong family structure, cultural and religious factor, refused to be seen but yearned to celebrate and enjoy their identity as black gay men deciding to host a small gathering in Malibu point Dune beach which was several miles away from the metropolis and in a place almost hidden from the public. This gathering was a huge success and eventually started a movement for the black gay pride.
