CONTACT: Brett Abrams | 

In response to singer Tevin Campbell opening up to People Magazine about his life and sexuality, Dr. David J. Johns, executive director of the National Black Justice Coalition, a leading national Black LGBTQ+ civil rights organization, issued the following statement celebrating Campell and thanking him for inviting us in:

“Tevin Campbell does not owe anyone a public declaration of his sexual identity; however, we are honored to have been invited in to learn more about his self-discovery. Everyone deserves the opportunity to choose if, when, how, and to whom we share important parts about who we are and how we experience the world. Tevin’s love songs are R&B classics. “Can we talk” continues to empower many of us to take our love lives into our own hands, a critical message for anyone who has felt they’ve missed an opportunity for love.”

The National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) is a civil rights organization dedicated to the empowerment of Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and same gender loving (LGBTQ/SGL) people, including people living with HIV/AIDS.
