Mr. Leather Europe Was Bullied
I guess this can happen to anyone. It even happens in gay relationships.
“In 2001, I found myself in a relationship with a man who could only be described as a malevolent bully.”
The man he was with, King writes, was “emotionally, mentally and physically abusive and systematically broke me down over the next five years, to a point where my confidence was at an all-time low.”
You can check out the full story here. There’s a photo of Mr. Leather Europe. It goes way more in-depth.
Pastor Accused of Beating the Gay Out of Him
This one is about a guy who was beaten for over two hours after he left church one Sunday. The idea behind it was that they wanted to beat the gay demons out of him.
Now, the church leader who orchestrated the attack, 58-year-old Brooke Covington, is on trial. She, along with five others, is accused of kidnapping and assault. If convicted, she faces up to two years behind bars.
Fenner testified that he thought he was “going to die” as we was being choked by one church member while Covington screamed, “God said there is something wrong in your life!”
Here’s the rest. Brooke Covington claims Fenner never told her to stop.
Gus Kenworthy Cries About Coming Out
Gus Kenworthy is making news again and this time he’s talking about what it was like to come out of the closet. I get into this a great deal in my next book, tentatively titled, “Treading With Care.” I don’t think most people can even begin to understand what it’s like for anyone to come out…which is why there are still so many in the closet.
“And after a while I just realized that the pain of holding on to this lie and the pain I was having from being in the closet was actually greater than the fear of just saying f**k it and letting go and so I was just like, screw it, I’m gonna come out…The following season was my best year competitively. I didn’t miss a podium. The sponsors were all super supportive.”
