Description
Gay men’s sexual health arm of the LGB&T charity Health Equality and Rights Organisation (HERO). GMFA delivers sexual health promotion interventions for gay men & provides sex & sexual health information for gay men online at their website (www.gmfa.org.uk/sex). Runs regular sexual health groupwork events across England. GMFA produces a bi-monthly magazine FS, which is distributed free across England and also produces a range of booklets, leaflets and postcards for gay men in London. GMFA does specific targeted work for black men who have sex with men, and HIV-positive gay men. Details of all GMFA’s work can be found on its website at www.gmfa.org.uk. GMFA operates through community involvement by recruiting a diverse range of gay men to every level of its work. Volunteers are encouraged to use evidence and access training opportunities. This approach means that the work is owned by the community and is responsive to changing needs, as well as being relevant and resonant with the men GMFA target. There are currently around 180 volunteers active in GMFA's work, most (but not all) of whom are gay men.
