Abstract

ZAMI NOBLA (National Organization of Black Lesbians on Aging) provides informal on-line support and community-building via closed Facebook groups and a listserv for hundreds of black lesbians, ages 40 and older, across the United States. Based in Atlanta, they also lead in-person community-based educational forums, discussion groups, and social events for more than 200 black lesbians in the Southeast. ZAMI NOBLA has implemented breast cancer screening interventions in the black lesbian community and conducted formative qualitative research among black lesbians ages 40 years and older in metropolitan Atlanta.
