Everyone wants to feel connected and loved. It can be hard for any adult to find a partner. Finding the “Right One” requires openness. The purpose of this fact sheet is to make sure that our openness does not extend to our wallets or pocketbooks.

Understand that there are scammers who are creating elaborate schemes and adopting false personas to develop “relationships” and extort some out of a combination of our homes, retirement, or life savings. Scammers attempt to convince their targets after swift attempts at gaining trust, that they are in love, often times targeting isolated or lonely individuals.

MOCHA

LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender & Queer) people of color need space to network, socialize and address the various health issues faced around this region. The MOCHA Center exists to meet those needs. The MOCHA Center serves Rochester and Buffalo through our two locations. Our spaces host community events, offer supportive services to those in need, provide a link to PrEP (a life-saving HIV prevention medication), perform free HIV testing and sex education, and distribute free safer sex tools like condoms and lube to the community.
