Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC)

Formed in 1982 to provide services to the gay men in New York who were first starting to be affected by AIDS, GMHC is still one of the leading support organizations for people with AIDS. Larry Kramer was one of the original founders of GMHC, but the organization split from him as he pushed them to shift their focus to political activism. Many ACT UPers have been volunteers and clients of GMHC.
