De Colores was created in 2011 when a couple of gay-identified youth saw the need to create a safe space in the Fruitvale area to come together and support one and other. It has from its inception served as a social group for young gay and bisexual men of color specifically focused on the mobilization and empowerment of young gay and bisexual men of color in Alameda county. The group has, from its inception, had the ultimate goal of helping its members shape a healthier and safer community for the LGBT community. The group has done this by creating a platform for youth to come together to both express their ideas and to see their ideas put into action. Some events, to name a few, have included game nights, bowling parties, camping trips, and discussion groups.
In 2011, De Colores implemented a community-level intervention known as "The Mpowerment Project". This project is funded by the Center of Disease Control and Prevention and is geared toward raising sexual health awareness among youth between the ages of 17 to 29. The Mpowerment Project has been implemented by several community based organizations across the nation, each specifically tailored to the needs of its respective communities, all ultimately driven to bringing young gay and bisexual men of color together in an effort to educate, encourage, and support HIV awareness, testing & linkage to care.
