  1. When I first read that Stephen had attempted suicide last year I remembered he had travelled abroad to make a docuementary about homophobia.

    I know of his condition and the affects that can have but exposure to vile hatred which cannot be qualified or justified is enough to fill any of us with despair.

    Homophobia is very much alive not oly globally but even on our door step here in the UK and it really does hurt people.

    The way I decide to live my life only affects me and those who choose to share my life, for those who don’t agree with my life style, get over it, it ain’t gonna change and we are not going to go away.

    I wish Stephen (one of our Nations treasures) all the very best for the future.

    Being out there facing and fighting homophobia has its toll on our mental well-being, even when we are ‘out and proud’ about who we are. Take care of yourself, Stephen

  4. If you are feeling a little on the low mood side, The Gay Press do seem to overwhelmingly give voice and publicity to people who would otherwise be shrugged off as insignificant. Hearing what lady x of somewhere thinks of gay fathers, or priest abuser thinks of equal marriage seems to offer nothing more than a downside to being gay. Perhaps we should all focus more on the gains we stand to make by having our feet on the ground, but our heads high in the sky

    Very best wishes sir. You deserve better, you deserve a good life. If that means meds pls FFS keep taking them!

  6. I’m manic-depressive too, not gay though. It doesn’t take much to send us over the edge. Please be nice to us…

    I’m bipolar as well. Stephen Fry’s documentary on the subject brought me a lot of comfort when I needed it most. I realize that this is something that will always stay with us, something that will never truly disappear no matter what we tell ourselves and I wish him all the best. And by the way, in the end, no matter what, he’s got the best remedy for depression – a s#itload of money. So stop sobbing, you a$s#ole and travel to the Bahamas or somewhere nice. you whining rich c@nt.

  9. Given what he was experiencing day to day at that time, you don’t need to be bipolar to become suicidal!
