Climbing the Olympic Stadium

If you like climbing in unusual places, then the Olympic Stadium in Munich, Bavaria, Germany, might be the ticket. You can climb all over the roof, abseil onto the running track, or use the steel cable running over the arena below. All these tours are guided and perfectly safe to go to. And you'll get all the specialized information for the price of one.

Berlin is Everywhere

If you think crimes against homosexual teenagers are something that happens elsewhere, reconsider. In a case like this one, Berlin is everywhere. The story of Nasser makes horrible reading and should encourage people everywhere to keep their eyes open to abuse against children going on all around them, straight and gay. But because he is gay, Nasser was tortured and kidnapped as a child - by his own family. Nasser's story is doesn't unfold in a distant land like the Lebanon but in the middle of Europe - in Berlin.


Intersex Children Allowed in Germany

Tradition demands that a child is born as a boy or a girl. Tradition ignores the fact that one in 2,000 children is born with characteristics of both sexes in varying degrees. Germany's government and parliament have listened to these people. It is now to become Europe's first country to allow babies with characteristics of both sexes to be registered as neither male nor female. There are good reasons for doing this, and some consequences that have yet to be sorted out.


Diving World Championship 2013

Any excuse will do, I suppose, to post some pictures of my favorite teen hunk Tom Daley. Admittedly, a World Championships is a good excuse, wouldn't you agree? The 15th FINA World Championships this year is held in Barcelona, Spain. From five years ago, we already know that Barcelona probably has the most spectacular venue anywhere in the world. And then there are the boys in their sporting dress, if you can call a guy in skimpy speedos dressed. And it's all revealed on TV before the watershed.
