It gets better when we make it better. HIM has a pretty simple idea: gay men with high self-esteem tend to live healthier lives and have access to better health choices. We're interested in improving social health factors that impact gay men, including the big-picture stuff like homophobia and heterosexism. We also have Professional Volunteers who specialize in social health.

Since I moved to London in September, I've been kind of boring, really. I put it down to my winter hibernation: sleeping a lot, reading books, generally nesting. I've been working a Monday-to-Friday retail job, and going to a different museum every weekend.
Coming out can be a real celebration! Remember the first time you might have realized that there was something a little different about yourself?
