About us

You can come to terms with HIV

Who we are

We are a friendly group of HIV positive gay men, living in and around London, UK.

Our members are representative of our cities cultural diversity, from a wide range of backgrounds, age groups and ethnicities, we also have members living with disability.

Each on our own individual journeys of living with HIV; we have members from those who are recently diagnosed, right through to those who have been living with the virus for more than 20 years.

Our members have come to live in London from all over the UK, Europe and the Rest of the World. We also frequently welcome HIV positive gay travelers, visiting London.

This website is funded by members of the group and is independent of all other organisations.

What we do

We meet on a weekly basis discussing issues specifically relating to HIV, such as disclosure, medication, pain management, dealing with co-infections such as Hep-C, but also broader topics such as relationships, finding a partner, work-life balance, growing older in a changing gay scene and chem sex.

Commonly other members will have faced and dealt with similar issues or situations from which they can share their experience. Many members come along feeling isolated, having few others to talk to about living with HIV.

Many find they are able to make new friendships, share mutual support and befriend others at the group.

All meetings are strictly confidential so you can feel free to relax and express yourself in a good-humoured, non-judgmental environment, with other HIV positive gay men.

Regular group members bring food to share (fruit, biscuits and coffee).
