The man, the Jamaica Observer was told, is now suffering from serious injuries and mental trauma after the harrowing experience. A group of joggers reportedly found the victim naked, with his hands and feet bound, sitting on the sidewalk at the foot of the hill close to Perkins Boulevard. The man reportedly parked his car at a nearby apartment complex and was about to jog when a white car drove up with two armed men who held him at gunpoint. The men, our source said, were also carrying knives. The hoodlums proceeded to tear off the jogger's clothes and took turns at buggering him. He had to retrieve his torn clothes in order to get his car keys and someone lent him clothes so he could avoid further embarrassment," a jogger said.

Eight Social Networking Sites for Men Who Love Men – TechCrunch
We were contacted today by the founder of the soon to launch social network for gay men BigJock.

From lawyers to artists to teachers to farmers, his perceptive, deeply personal portraits paint a layered picture of contemporary gay male life, the first-ever large-scale photographic survey of gay men in America. People always tell you to shoot what you love, and that objective led me to this project.
