Today, GMFA provides gay, bisexual and trans men who have sex with men with info, advice and support a special hub on www.lgbthero.org.uk and develops social media focused campaigns in a tone that men have come to know GMFA for.

FS tackles the harder issues such as alcohol, drugs, chemsex, racism within the GBT+ community, mental health and suicide and general sex and relationship advice. FS is currently read by over 500k people a year and you can download it via the FS app on iOS.

HangOuts: In 2020, as a response to the COVID pandemic, LGBT HERO set up online peer-support groups for LGBTQ+ people. These support groups work to bring people, who may be feeling isolated, lonely or not connected with the community to come together and talk about all things health and life. Our HangOuts programme has several different groups including support for LGBTQ+ people from minority backgrounds. The HangOuts programmes has supported over 1000 people so far. 

Campaigns: Developing campaigns and materials is a big part of what we do at LGBT HERO. Over the years we have developed 100s of campaigns and 1000s of supportive materials. In the last few years some of our most successful campaigns has been:

  • Me. Him. Us - a sexual wellbeing campaign for Black and South Asian men - MHU has reached over six million people since its launch in 2018,

  • Our hate crime awareness campaign 'Be an Ally / What next' reaching over 600,000 people since October 2020.
  • In 2021 we launched a new health hub for LBT+ people which offered specific info, advice and support in relation to the issues LBT+ people are facing right now. The hub, which is an ongoing project, has supported over 50,000 people so far.
