East Bay AIDS Walk 2008-Team Woubi Yossi Collective...

Greetings All I am hoping to assemble a team to walk during East Bay AIDS Walk 2008. If you are interested in participating you can go to the website for East Bay AIDS Walk to register and sign up with the team in the pull down menu for named, Woubi-Yossi Collective. I have tentatively set the group's goal as $250.00 but this amount can be changed. Details for the days and time are included in this message. If you have any questions feel free to contact me here or by e-mail

The term Woubi-Yossi comes from the Ivory Coast,

A "Woubi" takes on the "female" role in a male/male relationship

A "Yossi" takes on the "male" role in a male/male relationship

A "Bat" is a Transgender because they live by night

Currently there is no known term for a Lesbian in the Ivory Coast as "officially" there is no homosexuality in the country.
