On Thursday, federal prosecutors charged him with administering methamphetamine to a victim who died and released new details about how he targeted men struggling with homelessness and addiction. Black LGBT activists in California have been advocating for years for Buck to be brought to justice and have accused police of ignoring their concerns and allowing the politically connected activist to continue hurting people. Buck, whose arrest came after a third man overdosed in his home this month, would offer to pay his victims for sex, force them to do drugs, inject them directly, give them tranquilizers without telling them and take photos of them, the complaint said.
The film presents three stages in the life of the main character; his youth, adolescence, and early adult life.

InThe New York Times considered it the "twentieth-best film of the 21st century so far".
Just a few days ago, Tyler Hightower had only 40 Twitter followers. Now, he said his Apple Watch won't stop buzzing to alert him about replies people are leaving to a photo of him and his boyfriend sharing a kiss. The black, gay, and happy gworls are out here!
I would love to be able to afford to go to such a wondrous place. Unfortunately, reality quickly smacks me upside the head. What really bugs me about this conversation, and all those like it, though, is that marriage equality is often the sole basis on how to weigh progress.
For soon-to-marry couple Dominic Spence and Nick Gilyard, Instagram has become a place where together they show others what a young, black, queer relationship looks like.

Please refresh the page and retry. It had 14 nominations, won seven Golden Globes and celebrated the magic of movies themselves. It seemed unbeatable, but we were all wrong.
Overnight, the year-old Atlanta native — born Montero Lamar Hill — became the biggest gay pop star in the world. That he did so in the orbit of hip-hop and country, genres that have historically snubbed queer artists, was groundbreaking. But this is still a genre that has never been supportive of change.
Seeing someone who looked like me being open about who they are and who they love was such a powerful, personal affirmation. Not least of all because bi people are often the forgotten part of the LGBT acronym and that can make coming out as bi extremely difficult. Stonewall research shows that three in ten bi men 30 per cent cannot be open about their sexual orientation with any of their friends, compared to just two per cent of gay men and one per cent of lesbians. We know there are still many misconceptions about LGBT people in sport, and, unfortunately, homophobic, biphobic and transphobic attitudes and language remain a persistent problem.
