Men Like Us

This is the trailer for a new doco that had its premiere last night. ?Some of these men are now extraordinary in their ordinariness, ? though all have dealt with abuse, judgement and alienation. ?When my gay readers read the nasty, personalised attacks by some commenters here the effect ?can be debilitating. ?While I am for free speech I despise bigotry and bullying because of someone’s sexuality.

Our suicide stats are filled with young men and women who couldn’t withstand the abuse. ?What sort of decent society drives young people to that?
I know all to well the difficult battle with depression – ?to have that depression caused by the actions of people who are essentially cowards is one of the lowest forms of degradation a society can visit upon someone.
