The Gay Men’s Press was founded in 1979 by Aubrey Walter, David Fernbach, and Richard Dipple. GMP was the first and largest publisher of gay books in England. The company published fiction, non fiction and art books. The children’s book Jenny Lives with Eric and Martin, a translation of a Danish book, was published in 1983. The campaign against it led to Section 28 of the Local Government Act 1988 which forbade the “promotion” of homosexuality by local government.
The company was sold in 2000, and closed in 2006 due to dwindling book sales.
