GAY MEN AND GMHC’S MISSION

May 31, 2012

To the Editor:

Gay Men’s Health Crisis has some fine treatment and education programs in connection with HIV/AIDS (“AIDS Walk Draws 45,000, Raises $6 Million,” May 23-Jun. 5). I just wish the senior management could focus its mission. Many of its programs now have nothing to do with the gay community. GMHC's position is that the disease has changed, hence its focus has changed from the gay community to other at-risk groups.

That is probably true, but if you call yourself the Gay Men's Health Crisis only to solicit money from gay men, there's an inherent dishonesty there that should be addressed. Unfortunately the current CEO seems oblivious to the issue of dishonesty in fund-raising and seems ill-prepared to address it.
