Russian Gay Leader Considers Suicide

This screen capture from Nikolai Alekseev's Facebook page was sent to me yesterday by someone concerned with his mental state. He wrote this chilling message: I am much sure I will suicide. My life is in the hands of just one person . . .

While I have my strong differences with Nikolai, I genuinely hope he will find the mental health counseling he needs to overcome thoughts about suicide. Posting such a despondent message on the web may be a cry for help and support from his friends and family. Good to see notes were posted from friends and colleagues offering support.
