Who We Are

We are members of El Paso's gay community. Our mission is to reduce the number of new HIV infections among young gay and bi men and trans women. The most effective way to achieve this goal is by educating, empowering, and uniting the community against homophobia, low self-esteem, and high-risk sexual behavior.

The M Factor has two full time coordinators who oversee the program.

What We Do

The M Factor actively engages the gay community in El Paso to bring awareness of our program and our principles in a way that's fun, entertaining, and engaging. Our events are meant to unite the community and engage in dialogue about important issues. All our events are free and no membership is required. If you see an event you'd like to attend, just come! We'll make room for you.

Formal Outreach

Every month, volunteers from The M Factor hit up bars and clubs at Pride Square to distribute safer sex kits and recruit new members. This is our way of interacting with the community and promoting The M Factor.

High Gear

High Gear is a fun way to meet new guys just like you. Meetings are held once each month. Check our calendar of events for the next High Gear meeting.

Core Group

Our Core Group is a dedicated group of 8-10 guys who represent our community and are responsible for planning events, collaborating with local agencies, and ensuring success by addressing the needs of our community..
