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.

Next Social Event

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.

What's New

Meet the Blooms

GAMMA President Steven Bloom was approached by SBS program The Feed to talk about his experiences of being married and coming out. It was produced by Corrin Grant, and represents a very positive view of Steven's experience. Have a look and see for yourself! (10 mins)


LGBT Happiness Survey

The researchers from the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society (ARCSHS) of La Trobe University have just launched the What Makes You..? survey!

What Makes You..? is the first Australian study to focus on the positive aspects of being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). The survey seeks to understand what makes LGBT people happy and fulfilled and to identify the challenges and obstacles that may prevent their happiness. The results of the survey will help governments, clinical services and community groups plan their programs and policies so they can better support LGBT Australians.

The survey will take only 20 to 30 minutes to complete and it is anonymous. What Makes You..? has been approved by the La Trobe University Ethics Committee (ref no. S15/205).

If you are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender (18+ yrs) and living in Australia - please help us understand What Makes You HAPPY, What Makes You SAD, What Makes You RESILIENT and What Makes You GREAT by filling in our online survey at

Please contact Emily via phone (T: 03 94798743) or email (E: if you have any questions about the survey.


Experiences of gay and married men

Researchers at The University of New South Wales, VAC, ACON and GAMMA are seeking volunteer research participants to learn about the experiences of men who are married to women and who have sex with men. There is such little current research about men in mixed orientation marriages and anxiety/depression that this will be a significant study. We encourage you to take part.
