Gay Mens’ Health Crisis (GMHC) is a not-for-profit, volunteer-supported and community-based organization committed to national leadership in the fight against AIDS. The organization’s mission is to reduce the spread of HIV disease, help people with HIV maintain and improve their health and independence, and keep the prevention, treatment and cure of HIV an urgent national and local priority. In fulfilling this mission, G.M.H.C remains true to their heritage by fighting homophobia and affirming the individual dignity of all gay men and lesbians.
Founded in 1978, Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) is New England’s leading legal rights organization dedicated to ending discrimination based on sexual orientation, HIV status and gender identity and expression. Providing litigation, advocacy, and educational work in all areas of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender civil rights and the rights of people living with HIV, GLAD has a full-time legal staff and a network of cooperating attorneys across New England. When we go to court, we go there to win. But regardless of the outcome, each time we argue a case, we make a statement that chips away at outdated laws, challenges stereotypes, and helps further our cause: to ensure equal justice under law for all. The commitment to individual dignity and freedom is an intrinsic part of the American experience, yet for many of us, the way we are treated by society reflects a very different reality. GLAD has sought to create an American society true to its founding principles that all people are created equal and endowed with certain inalienable rights.

Not So Churchy
The Not So Churchy worshipping community is intimate, portable, and spiritually curious and committed. We worship monthly and gather for education, spirituality groups, service and community events.
We thrive when we are connected, but not too connected, to the traditional church. We are artists, community activists, and musicians. We are adults and kids.
We are lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, and straight allies. We bring all of ourselves, the stuff we like and the stuff we aren’t so sure of.
There is always laughter
You might feel calmer leaving than you did coming in
Each gathering is a little bit different, created with care and for the moment
There is space for change, room to grow, and an experience that’s Not So Churchy.
