With the glaring examples of jaded gay youth, I have to ask? Where are our gay mentors? And I mean real gay mentors, not older sex partners or daddies.
Where are the older and wiser gay men that can lead our future generation in a better direction.
We hear about the priest sucking little boys off or we hear about mayors sleeping with their interns, but where is the news about a gay leader helping youngsters get off the streets and into schools. Where are the gay mentors providing real leadership to the LGBT teens, struggling to find their way.
Where are they? We need to hear more about them. I'm tired of powerful gay men, mayors, leaders or whatever falling into scandal. We need new examples of gay empowerment and leaders. Great and positive examples are few and far between, and that's not good for us.
