Many Faces. One Dream. (MFOD) will touch down in New York as one of 13 cities throughout the country that have a significant LGBT presence in communities of color, including Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Ft. Lauderdale/Miami, Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Newark, Oakland/San Francisco, Philadelphia and Washington, DC.

In its inaugural year, these 13 serve as a pilot for the initiative. As the initiative grows and LGBT people of color across the nation begin to own their power, MFOD will expand to include cities with a large population of LGBT people of color.
