Colby Melvin on sobering up, sex, and the cruelty of social media
There are a lot of motivational posts on Colby Melvin’s Facebook page these days.
Memes about being kind to yourself, pulling yourself out of dark places, reasons for getting sober.
Sober? Yep. America’s 31-year-old underwear sweetheart, businessman, entrepreneur, the man who can pull off a jockstrap, literally, and still look as innocent as his baby blue eyes—or are they green, hazel, gray? Aye, there’s his mischievous rub—is back from a rough couple of years of depression, despair, and drugs.
He’s also ready to talk, his voice something he’s never been afraid to use.
Speaking to Colby on the phone in Louisiana, where he now lives, again, with the parents who raised him, he didn’t shy away from a single question or tell me any subject was off-limits.
If he bared anything to Queerty, this time it was his soul.
A variety of things. It started a few years ago. There’s something about being in the public eye. Your life becomes public property. Everyone is criticizing or weighing in or judging. It’s hard for it not to get to you.
"I'm 51 and gay, but I can't come out": callers opens up to James O'Brien
This is the powerful moment a caller came out as gay to James O'Brien and opened up about why he can't tell anyone else.
This Morning presenter Phillip Schofield, who has been married for almost 27 years and has two grown up daughters, has announced that he is gay.
James' caller Joe found the story "amazing" and felt compelled to call in because he is gay and feels unable to tell anyone.
"I've turned to drugs," said Joe, "I'm 50 years old and I turned to drugs 12 months ago."
"Because the stress of keeping it secret was too much for you?" asked James, and Joe confirmed that he at times has felt suicidal having to hide the truth after realising he was gay at 12.

1.8 million LGBTQ youth in America “seriously consider” suicide each year
New research has revealed worrying statistics about mental health among LGBTQ youth.
The new report from The Trevor Project, an American charity that focuses on suicide prevention for young LGBTQ people, has estimated that 1,892,000 LGBTQ people aged 13-24 in the US have “seriously considered” suicide in the past year.
Of that total number, the charity estimate that 1,199,000 LGBTQ youth aged 13-18 have seriously considered suicide in the past year, while 693,000 LGBTQ youth aged 19-24 have seriously considered suicide in the past year.
The charity also found that LGBTQ youth with at least one accepting parent were 40% less likely to report a suicide attempt int the past year.
“Suicide is an ongoing public health crisis for young people in the U.S., especially among LGBTQ youth,” said Amit Paley, the CEO and executive director of The Trevor Project.
“Better understanding the mental health experiences of LGBTQ young people is a major step in addressing their significantly higher risk for attempting suicide. Together, we can ensure that LGBTQ young people know their lives have value, and that they are heard, loved, and never alone.”

HIV criminalization is happening in 72 countries
HIV criminalization continues: a global review has found that HIV-related arrests, investigations, prosecutions and convictions have ever occurred in at least 72 countries, with recent cases occurring in 49 countries, including 14 in which the law appeared to be applied for the first time.
The HIV Justice Network’s review concerns cases in which either the criminal or similar law is applied to people living with HIV based on HIV-positive status. Either via HIV-specific criminal statutes (29 countries), general criminal or similar laws (37 countries), or both (6 countries). Such laws typically criminalize non-disclosure of HIV status to a sexual partner, potential or perceived exposure to HIV, or transmission of HIV.
HIV criminalization ‘is a pervasive illustration of how state-sponsored stigma and discrimination works against a marginalized group of people with immutable characteristics,’ says HIV Justice Network.

Catholic priest blasted for asking 'ladies' to dress modestly to 'protect the purity of the men at holy Mass'
A Catholic priest was blasted on Twitter for asking "ladies" to dress modestly to "protect the purity of men at holy Mass." And while Father Kevin M. Cusick later tweeted that he isn't backing down from his request, it appears his Twitter account has since been deleted.
Cusick — who's from the Washington, D.C., area — on Monday posted the following tweet: "Ladies, a priest I know was forced on Sunday to ask a woman at Mass to cover her shoulders. Please help the priest to protect the purity of the men at holy Mass by choosing to dress modestly. The alternative is awkward for all involved. Thank you."

A Look At The Staggering Sexual Harassment Numbers In The Legal Profession
A new international survey reveals that sexual harassment in the legal profession is truly at epidemic proportions. The survey, with almost 7,000 respondents, was conducted by the International Bar Association and market research company Acritas and asked both lawyers and nonlawyers in the legal profession from 135 countries questions about sexual harassment and bullying within the industry.

Academic claims she's discovered anal suppository 'cure' for homosexuality
A Kuwaiti academic claims she discovered an anal suppository ‘cure’ for homosexuality.
Mariam Al-Sohel appeared on Scope TV to explain how her gay cure medicine based on Islamic prophecy works.
‘I discovered therapeutic suppositories that curb the sexual urges of boys of the third gender,’ she said. ‘As well as the fourth gender, which is butch lesbians.’
The ‘third gender’ is feminine gay men, according to Al-Sohel.
She then continued: ‘This is all science, so there’s nothing to be ashamed of.
‘The sexual urge develops when a person is sexually attacked. And afterwards it persists because there is an anal worm that feeds on semen. It feeds on sperm.
‘So what I did was to produce suppositories, which are to be used by certain people at a certain time. It cures those urges by exterminating the worm that feeds on sperm,’ she said.
