GAMMA in DC was organized January 10, 1978 with a meeting of 35 men in Bethesda. The group grew out of the ashes of the Cinema Follies fire on October 24, 1977, which claimed the lives of a number of married men. The group was the first outreach to bisexual men and married men with gay interests. GAMMA met for six years at St Alban's Episcopal Library. GAMMA organized support and established a network to assist gay married men in coming to terms with their sexual orientation in relation to their roles as husbands and fathers. GAMMA continues to be organized by and for gay or bisexual men located in the Washington DC area who are married to, have been married to, or are in any other similar relationship with a woman. We aren't affiliated with any religious, political, or social organization. We are an all-volunteer group of men who are here to support each other as we deal with the issues surrounding our sexual orientation and how that impacts our marriages, families, and other relationships.
