Chapter History
Keith C. and the Brother United Nashville Coordinator met at a Tennessee Community Planning Group Meeting for HIV Prevention. At the time, Keith was working for AIDS Response Knoxville as a Program Coordinator. He was very interested in the techniques used in Nashville that targeted the Black Gay Community. Through this friendship, both agencies then developed a link through a retreat created by Keith call UBU & Score (Smart Confident Optimistic Romantic Erotic). Members from Nashville attended this retreat, thus beginning this the Knoxville chapters concentration and dedication within our statewide effort.

Through out the years after Keith & his partner relocated, the BUK brothers managed to stay together and continue to grow and serve the city of Knoxville, and surrounding areas. Michael is now serving as our president and under his leadership we are hoping to grow even larger. We welcome any old and new brothers of Knoxville to come and be apart of a winning team that's fighting for one cause.
