1992: GMFA was founded by a group of gay men who felt that there was not enough HIV prevention work being specifically targeted at gay men. Originally named Gay Men Fighting AIDS, GMFA's initial remit was to campaign for more targeted HIV prevention work aimed at gay men, and to raise awareness of HIV amongst gay men.
2001: GMFA merged with the Black gay men's group Big Up.
2002: GMFA broadened its remit to include all health issues which disproportionately affect gay men over other populations. We changed our mission statement and 'Gay Men Fighting AIDS' became 'GMFA - the gay men's health charity'.
