Our next meeting Wednesday 1 April
7:15 pm for a 7:30 start
414 Elizabeth Street near Central Station
Topic: Looking after the other half: the female partners
Speaker: Roxanne McMurray, manager of the Leichhardt Womens' Community Health Centre
Roxanne not only handles the problems of the partners of
formerly married gay men, but in the course of her work,
has gained a lot of insights into GAMMA men's problems
and shares them with us.
A note about getting into the building:
The ACON building is closed after office hours,
so if you arrive and are not sure how to get in, please be patient.
Kind souls on their way out will usually let you in,
and there'll be someone from the group along soon.
Next Social Event See down the page for getting together for a cheap and cheerful dinner before meetings.

President Message

Steven Bloom

Thanks for joining us on the GAMMA website. The purpose of GAMMA is to provide safe and confidential opportunities for men to discuss and consider issues relating to their sexuality and the relationships in their lives.

We are a peer support group run by men who have been through their own journey and we meet twice a month to listen to each other, provide support, and often have a guest speaker on a relevant topic of interest.

Many men come to their first meeting feeling vulnerable, uncertain, perhaps confused, and concerned about what lies ahead. Some face problems demanding immediate attention whilst others are still coming to grips with their own internal feelings. Whatever the case we are here to help.

It can be a big step to make a call, read this website, or attend a meeting so I've prepared a video to give you a brief overview.

Steven Bloom Welcome to GAMMA

I look forward to welcoming you at our next GAMMA meeting.

Steven Bloom
GAMMA president.

Phone Support

As well as meetings, GAMMA operates a phone support line. If you ring us, you will not be talking to a call centre but to a competent trained GAMMA member who has been on similar journey to yourself. Anyone is welcome to call for support, information and referrals.

The service has a Freecall number and you can ring from anywhere in New South Wales for the price of a local call.

So, if you've got a problem you'd like to discuss, or are hesitant about coming to a meeting in person, or simply not able to get to Sydney easily, please give us a call.

The number is 1800 804 617.

Dinner before Meetings

On their way to GAMMA meetings, some of of our men gather at the Shakespeare Hotel in Devonshire Street to enjoy a meal and a chat.

The Shakespeare is one of the old-time local pubs still around in inner Sydney: the bar can be quite rowdy, so we usually ahead upstairs where the former bedrooms have been converted to dining rooms of various sizes.

It's a pleasant thing to do and good value for money: all meals are $12.50, with quite a wide choice in the menu.

Even if you're not able to get along to the meeting, you still have to eat, and among friends is as good a way as any.

Whats New

Hoping for better things:
The gay community and the NSW Police

Since the events of Mardi Gras 2013, the NSW Police Force seems to have cleaned up its act. There has been an accord between the community and the government, and Detective Superintendent Tony Crandell has been appointed NSW Police Corporate Sponsor for Sexuality and Gender Diversity, speaking out about relations between the community and the Force. Hopefully we should be able to look forward to a trouble-free Mardi Gras.
