Would you recommend Gay Men of African Descent, Inc.?

by David H. (August 11, 2013)
This organization is one of the worst organizations for black gay men. Poor management, weak structure, mismanagement of funds and little support to minority gay men....or women. They are actually being sued by several people, including a fellow gay man, Robert E. Crawford, for not getting paid for work he completed for the agency. Even staff members aren't getting paid for work being completed. Rev. Angel would be turning in his grave right now. Take my advice....DONT STEP FOOT IN THIS ORGANIZATION'S OFFICE. THERE IS SO MUCH NEGATIVE CONNECTION WITH GMAD. PERIOD!!!!! They don't care about the community...except only to exploit it for their own benefit. Nor do they care about the staff and looking for better. more dedicated individuals. Anyone that works with this GMAD ends in hurting their reputation, etc. PLEASE JUST STAY AWAY FROM THIS ORGANIZATION. IT NEEDS TO BE SHUT DOWN---PERIOD!!
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
