GMFA  - the gay men's health project is part of the HERO - Health Equality and Rights Organisation family. 

  • GMFA receives over 120,000 hits a month from gay and bisexual men looking looking for quality and trusted information and advice about HIV, STIs, living with HIV and support services.
  • We signpost thousands of gay and bisexual men to sexual health and mental health services every year.
  • Our campaigns, which include Me. Him. Us. and The Undetectables reach over 2 million people a year.
  • Our gay men's health magazine, FS has over 125,000 readers per issue.
  • And GMFA provides a social space for gay and bisexual men living with HIV called The Positive Pub Crawl

However, we receives no financial support from local or national Government sources to run GMFA. 

We rely on the support and generosity of you - the LGBTQ+ community to keep the work we do through GMFA going.

Your support is vital in enabling us to continue providing gay and bisexual men with the information they need to live happy, healthier lives. To provide HIV prevention information, to tackle HIV stigma and to work towards fighting health inequalities that gay and bisexual men face. 

Your donation will help us reach more gay and bisexual men to support them by creating personal and social change in their own lives and communities.
