Our story is your story. HomoJo is a not for profit brand with an ambition to spark connection within the LGBT+ community.
We’re here to help support inclusion and to work on creating an environment in which bullying and shaming have no place. Anyone striving for a supportive community is a part of our DNA. Our aim is to build a solid platform for people to form different spectrum's of relationships and to help each other learn and celebrate the differences between us. HomoJo and our friends will always be an evolving LGBT+ support, and strive to connect you with people who share the same values and ambitions for a more united community.
HomoJo is about promoting awareness of our own behavior, and to be truly conscious of how we treat one another. Approaching fractured perceptions in a neutral, friendly, and effective way. Escaping the logic that in order to educate, you must reprimand. Guiding each other to a healthier community; not shoving.
Most importantly, HomoJo is about walking on the lighter side of the street. Having fun, staying strong, and being yourself with conviction. So spark that mojo, and let’s be friends.
"Growing up as gay man in a military city 18 years ago was less than a treat. Multiple violent assaults based on my sexuality, daily homophobic slurs, and a lack of supportive community made me feel isolated, unwelcome, and redundant."
"At 33 I finally know what it feels like to be part of a community who not only accept me for who I am, but encourage it. Encouragement my friends have miraculously failed to regret as of yet ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I wanted to create HomoJo as a tool for amplifying inclusion, and to diminish internal bullying. I did this in hope that more people will benefit from the strength and support that I know a more united LGBT+ community can provide."
"I was in my early 20s when I came out to her. Gay, independent and content, living with my boyfriend at the time and our two cats. She- a Catholic, Indian woman, raised in a world where men marry women and save themselves for marriage, where God is real, and if you don’t repent, you will burn in the fires of hell."
"Coming out to the anchor in my life has been shattering and draining. However, there grows ease in meeting others- strangers, and revealing the most vulnerable details of myself to them.
"The power of inclusion in the community and its impact on the quality of my mental and bodily health continues root into the foundations of my emotional dialogue and outward expressions. Within the walls of a safe space among our chosen families, I (we) no longer have to pretend."
