Gay Men's Health Crisis handout, "SAFER SEX / IS FOR / EVERYONE" with safety pin
In 1981, six gay men (and their friends) gathered in writer Larry Kramer's living room to address the "gay cancer" and raise money for research. This informal meeting provided the foundation for what would soon become Gay Men's Health Crisis. Today, GMHC continues to pioneer HIV prevention, care and advocacy.
