Gay Men’s Health Outreach (GMHO) launched in 2013 as part of AIDS Project of the Ozark community outreach to provide a safe, affirming, and holistic environment to address the complete health needs of men that identify as Gay, Bi, and men who have sex with other men (MSMs) here in the Southwest Missouri. At GMHO, we believe we can end the health disparities of Gay, Bi, and MSMs by addressing the underlying causes, shifting cultural beliefs, and promoting smarter behaviors that empower a healthy life for all of us.

Open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5pm to 10pm. We are welcoming space for gay/bi men to socialize, receive support, and get free HIV/STD testing and counseling.
