Dedicated to creating a healthier and better connected LGBT+ community in London.

The Gay Men’s Dance Company (GMDC) was founded in September 2015 by Alex Scurr a London based dancer, dance teacher and choreographer. The GMDC offers a creative outlet; a place to express yourself in a safe and supportive environment while keeping fit, socialising and enjoying your chosen hobby.

The company quickly developed into a safe space where people could share their experiences. The Foundation was created in response to evident needs within a community still burdened with external stigma and prejudice. A board of dedicated volunteers has been elected to run the Foundation, and our work supports already established LGBT+ charities.

Our partner organisations are: 56 Dean StreetLondon FriendEast London Out ProjectOpening DoorsPositive EastWandsworth OasisDiversity Role Models and Mind Out.

Issues we are committing to tackle include:

  • Mental health
  • LGBT+ stigma, and young people’s education
  • STI prevention measures
  • HIV stigma
  • Coming out
