It’s widely known and well documented that Terrence Chappell is what some may call an uber-gentlemen. He’s a major player in many of the city top philanthropic organizations and has been featured in all of the most respected monthly publications and blogs. He was listed this past February in The Flyy-Life article; The 13 Most Flyy and Eligible Bachelors. When Terrence invited me to this month’s Banjee Black Gurl’s Brunch, I expected to have a good time but I was not aware that his hosting capabilities were on such an impressive level. The brain child of this monthly event is fellow journalist Zach Stafford, a writer for both The RedEye and Huffingtonpost. The premise surrounding the event is that each person within the circle of friends would alternate hosting the monthly event in their homes. Terrence opened up his Edgewater home and was most attentive and engaging. I reached out to Terrence for a statement and here is what he had to say. “These brunches have truly become a staple among my circle of friends. There are not a lot of social endeavors or spaces that cater to gay black men. So, from its inception in February of earlier this year, they’re a safe space for us. I was so excited and even honored to be able to provide that safe space on Sunday. I’m looking forward to seeing these monthly brunches grow to cast a wider net within our community.” As guest began to feel the bubbles of their Champaign pop; we enjoyed dancing, conversation and hilarious jokes. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and look forward to the next brunch. Grown men, doing grown men things…Check out the pics below…Cheers…Deo
