The MSMGF has a broad portfolio of programmatic activities that are consistent with our core operating principles. Our efforts include networking activities, research, technical assistance and capacity building, and cultural production:
The MSMGF regularly supports gatherings of MSM, advocates, activists, researchers, health officials and key stakeholders in the global effort for human rights and against HIV. From collegial introductions to strategic partnerships and multi-session intensive summits, the MSMGF helps to serve as connective tissue for this global movement.
The MSMGF believes that ethical, rigorous and inclusive research is central to the fight against HIV. The MSMGF contributes to the global body of knowledge on MSM and HIV by activating targeted sections of a robust global network to collaborate on survey projects, key correspondent interviews, and other important research initiatives.
In an effort to support essential local programs and initiatives, the MSMGF provides technical assistance and capacity building services for MSM and advocates worldwide.
From this website to publications to animated videos to the commissioning of original artwork, the MSMGF is committed to cultural production. By this we mean people working together to make things and shape their own realities. Ideas, images, publications, momentum, social change. We want to tell stories with you, share pictures, discover new insights, and support the immense creativity of MSM worldwide. We want to make meaning together. If you’ve got creative writing, ideas or artwork, please let us know! To view examples of our cultural productions, visit our Publications page!
