    "Cincy Black Pride presents our 3rd Annual Black Alphabet Film Festival (BAFF). Since its inception in 2013, BAFF has worked to encourage storytelling, cultivate new dialogues and educate communities about the cultural and social contributions that Black LGBTQ-identified people have made upon the world. The founding mission, "to identify and present the stories that portray the variety of gender and sexual expressions of the Black Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer or Questioning (LGBTQ) community through the art of film," has sustained the organization for several years. Black Alphabet's vision and mission reflect the desire to use media and the creative arts to promote healthy and whole lifestyles to the Black LGBTQ+ community."
