Title: GMFA's Guide To Gay Sports Clubs And Social Groups

GEMS—Gay Elderly Men’s Society Brighton

Brighton GEMS is a social group for gay men over the age of 50 in Brighton and Hove and the surrounding area. Our aim is to provide events for those that are still socially active and to provide help for those who find themselves in isolation, often due to failing health. The story of the group begins in 1997 when the Older Lesbian and Gay Men’s Forum was formed as an extension of Age Concern Brighton. It was felt that more work was needed to help older members of the community. This later became GEMS and is now known as Brighton GEMS. The proudest moment in our history was when in 2011 we were recognised for the services we provide when receiving the award of The Queens Award for Voluntary Services to the Community. What the Group Does Each month we hold a series of events. This includes attending theatre events, going for meals, attending local LGBTQ community events and going on day-trips. Brighton GEMS also hold two meetings a month at Dorset Gardens Methodist Church Hall. These are held on the second Monday (2.30 to 4.30pm) and final Friday (7 to 9pm) of the month. The events start with a buffet and are followed by speakers from other local support and social groups. This gives our members the chance to learn about other groups and services that can help them. The group always welcomes new members. If you live in Brighton and Hove or the surrounding district, free membership is easily available.
