 Risk For Osteoporosis Higher For Gay Men

This is interesting because I’ve known several older gay men who’ve had osteoporosis. And it hasn’t been fun for any of them. It’s a very painful issue. 

Non-heterosexual minority men have a greater risk of poor bone health than heterosexual men, and this risk appears to be independent of lifestyle and psychosocial factors, suggests a study published in the American Journal of Human Biology.

Here’s the link for more. They claim that minority stress is a huge contributor with regard to health disparities. Very interesting study and it’s the first time I’m seeing something like this taken seriously.  The older gay men I’ve known with osteoporosis were, indeed, stressed. It’s not always easy for gay men to carve out a place for themselves in this heteronormative world.

“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”
