GMHC is the umbrella for three beautifully proportioned volunteer-led health and well-being projects for gay and bi men, and men who have sex with men.
- MENRUS.CO.UK is a gay men’s health and well-being website with a holistic view towards health. Divided into six key sections, YOU, MEN, BODY, SEX, STI and DRUGS, the content has a straight-forward and conversational writing style with 11,000+ links to support, films, and further information drawn from across the Internet.
- THREE FLYING PIGLETS makes short films on gay men’s health issues and films for the wider LGBT+ community including our allies. Our films often address knowledge gaps not addressed elsewhere, aim to better connect us to our health and well-being needs.
- PIP PAC are safer chemsex packs to reduce drug harms innovated by gay men with direct knowledge and experience of recreational drug use; and problematic drug use, withdrawal, and recovery. Reviewed regularly, contents include colour-coded injecting paraphernalia and a mini-sharps box; gloves, condoms and lubricant; a safer chemsex booklet inc information on ambulance and police call-outs in overdose situations; and a rights on arrest booklet.
To keep running costs down, many aspects of delivering our projects are managed virtually, volunteers working remotely from homes, trains, cafés (where ever we can get a half-decent wi-fi hotspot). While we take our work seriously this cannot be said of ourselves. We’ll collaborate with just about anyone, sleep with just about anything, and insist that our meetings are usually conducted over a home-cooked meal or afternoon tea.
In September 2016, the Gay Men’s Health Collective became a community interest company (CIC) and a company limited by guarantee. Company number: 10404160. From 2018, GMHC started worked from the national drugs charity Release 2-3 days a week at 61 Mansell Street, London E1 8AN. GMHC aimed to move to charitable status in 2020 but this has been delayed indefinitely due to COVID-19.
