Research suggests that bisexual men are much more likely to experience depression and anxiety than their gay and straight counterparts. According to Eric Schrimshaw of Columbia University, this suffering comes from a high level of concealment and a lack of disclosure. The Columbia study showed that almost 38 percent of the bisexual participants said that they never told anyone about their sexual identity and 80 percent said they keep their sexual relationships with men to themselves.
Although this concealment may shield bisexual men from the types of discrimination and rejection often experienced by open gays, it can also leave many men without a language or a community with whom they can discuss their feelings
If DOMA is declared unconstitutional, will the federal government and other states be required to accept civil unions as marriages? Or will folks with civil unions still be denied the benefits the federal government gives to married couples?
Though it’s best known as the dating application of choice for legions of gay men, Grindr is wading into the political foray with a brand-new project just in time for the 2012 presidential election.
“Grindr for Equality,” a newly-developed social effort, strives to “unite gay men across the country, make that voice grow louder and have a nationwide impact,” according to the app’s founder and CEO.
“We must elect not only a president but representatives and senators who are supportive of our community and our equality,” Joel Simkhai said in a statement. “Local elections have national impact, so we want to use Grindr as a tool for mobilizing and connecting gay men around the country to help make a combined national impact.”
This is my friend and her girlfriend. The girl on the right was killed last night, by what is thought to be a hate crime. They were on a date. They were both shot and dumped in tall grass. They were found this morning by a couple while they were out for a walk. (This is all we know right now) Mollie has passed but her girlfriend, Kristene, is still alive. She is in very critical condition with a gunshot wound to the head. Please pray for her. Think about them. Pass this on. Something. Please. We need her to come through so the people that did this can be put in their rightful spot.
You will always be Loved and never forgotten, Mollie. Rest in Peace, Sweetheart.<3
