Chris Cuomo Makes Heartfelt Plea To End The Stigma Surrounding Mental Illness
Chris Cuomo would ask for an end to mental illness, and not for world peace, if a genie from a bottle ever granted him a wish.
“Why? Peace is temporary, we know that,” the host of CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” explained on Thursday night.
“Mental illness is too often, forever,” he added.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and Cuomo dedicated an entire segment of his show to tackling the stigma surrounding mental illness.
How I survived three suicide attempts as gay teen and am now getting angry
I was seven years old when I knew I was different. One day my brain pieced it all together and suddenly it hit me: ‘Wait, am I gay?’
My whole life changed forever. Things now made sense but I hated who I was becoming. I started to wonder what my parents would think. Would I lose my friends? Will society reject me? All as a 12-year-old boy.
I withdrew and would spend most of my time outside of school in my room. I stopped talking for fear people would be able to tell from the sound of my voice. I became depressed and isolated.
Now friendless, I spent my 13th birthday alone in my room feeling awful about myself. I couldn’t see a future where I could be happy again. Two days later I tried to take my life for the first time.
Nobody knew I had tried to take my life and I felt embarrassed. I didn’t know what to do, or who to talk to. Because the suicide attempt was linked to my sexuality it was impossible to seek help. After that attempt I thought life might get better but it got worse.

Shangela's Success Shows the Power of Queer Resilience
Shangela has come a long way.
This year alone, the performer had a role in the acclaimed film A Star Is Born starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga — and became the first drag queen to walk the red carpet at the Oscars.
Additionally, Shangela made the LGBTQ community proud earlier this month by dancing and lip-syncing to a medley of Beyoncé songs — in front of Beyoncé at the GLAAD Media Awards. The now-viral performance was so excellent, even Queen Bey herself rose for a standing ovation.
OFFERING HEALTH CHECK-UPS IN BARBERSHOPS COULD TRANSFORM HEALTH CARE FOR BLACK MEN IN AMERICA
Dennis Mitchell owns a small ground-floor barbershop in the heart of Harlem, where he presides over rows of gleaming salon chairs, cutting fades and shaves and earning the nickname Denny Moe. For years, one of the regular customers sitting in front of Moe's mirrors has been Dr. Joseph Ravenell, an associate professor in the Departments of Population Health and Medicine at New York University's School of Medicine. Barbershops have been havens for Ravenell since he was a kid, when he accompanied his father to his regular haircuts and witnessed the bonds that men formed in these safe places, "talking about everything under the sun."
As an adult, Ravenell focuses his research on the medical disparities black men face in America.
"As a man myself, and a father and a brother, I have an enlightened self-interest in the topic," he says, laughing. Black men, because of both logistical barriers and mistrust, are often cut off from health-care systems—but as he was thinking about haircuts one day, Ravenell says, "a lightbulb went off." Barbers, he thought, as trusted confidants and community leaders, could become a powerful bloc to promote health in black communities.

THESE SCIENTISTS ARE 3D-PRINTING NEW BODY PARTS FOR ATHLETES
A team of bioengineers has successfully 3D-printed tissues they believe doctors could one day implant into patients to help heal the knee, ankle, and elbow injuries that have ended the careers of countless athletes.
“I think this will be a powerful tool to help people with common sports injuries,” Rice University researcher Sean Bittner said in a press release — though the impact of the group’s work could extend far beyond the turf or pitch.
These students have developed technology to protect their high schools during a shooting
In the era of mass shootings, some high school teens are taking their safety into their own hands.
Two groups of high school students have been recognized in a nationwide contest for developing contraptions that would increase safety during a school shooting.
A team from Owensville High School in Owensville, Missouri, designed a simple auxiliary steel lock that would add an extra layer of protection to classroom doors.
And students from Richland Two Institute of Innovation in Columbia, South Carolina, devised an electromagnetic system that remotely locks doors and covers windows to seal off classrooms from threats.

Martin Luther King Jr.'s true, radical legacy is being whitewashed by people looking for easy absolution
The celebration of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. takes place this year amidst political chaos. In particular, it is occurring in the middle a weeks-long government shutdown that has pitted President Donald Trump, the leader of a party that is 90 percent white, against the most diverse Congress in American history over an idea that has been derided as racist and xenophobic.
Praise for Dr. King’s legacy will emerge from this partisan rancor. Rather than invoke unity, however, such praise exposes a difficult truth: King's legacy has become as segregated as the country he tried to heal.
How the First LGBTQ Mariachi Became an Outlet for Advocacy
What social power does music have? Where does that power come from?
Mariachi musicians Carlos Samaniego and Natalia Melendez found out the hard way—first through discrimination, ridicule and professional blackballing among their musician peers, then via the challenging path of advocating for the acceptance of gay, lesbian and transgender people in the mariachi world.
