Behind The Man: George Micheal Gave Millions To Bullied And Abused Children Causes And HIV/AIDS Charities

Behind The Man:  George Micheal Gave Millions To Bullied And Abused Children Causes And HIV/AIDS Charities


The Irish Times reports:

Behind the headlines and huge on-stage persona, George Michael was a generous man who kept quiet about his considerable charitable donations, it has emerged.  The star donated all the royalties from his 1996 number one single Jesus To A Child to charity, and is said to have given a gameshow contestant thousands of pounds to fund her IVF treatment.

Michael has helped countless children as a result of his donations to Childline, the charity’s founder and president Dame Esther Rantzen said. “For years now he has been the most extraordinarily generous philanthropist, giving money to Childline, but he was determined not to make his generosity public so no-one outside the charity knew how much he gave to the nation’s most vulnerable children,” she told the Press Association.

“Over the years he gave us millions and we were planning next year, as part of our 30th anniversary celebrations to create, we hoped, a big concert in tribute to him — to his artistry, to his wonderful musicality but also to thank him for the 100s of 1,000s of children he helped through supporting Childline.”

Childline provides help with issues with include child abuse, bullying, mental illness, parental separation or divorce, pregnancy and substance misuse.

The same year that he came out as gay in 1991 , George Michael began his public activism by helping with a documentary about six young people affected by the HIV virus to coincide with World Aids Day.

As part of his philanthropy — much of it under the radar — he was also a major supporter of the Terrence Higgins Trust, a British HIV charity.

“His donations contributed to a vision of a world where people living with HIV live healthy lives free from prejudice and discrimination.

George Michael was a true gay icon and LGBT hero.  He will be greatly missed.

Elton John, Andrew Ridgeley, Madonna, Brian May, Sam Smith, Kylie Minogue, Johnny Marr and countless other artists and fans have paid tribute to the 53-year-old star.


What’s "Too Gay" Today? – Rafael Nadel Rules The World!, Lifetime Network De-Gays Movie, Fried Beer?, George Michael Gets 8 Weeks, Ryan Buell is Bi!, and the $178 Dollar Cheese Sandwich!

* Last night, Lifetime cable channel presented thei television adaptaion of The 19th Wife that tells the story of a man, Jordan, who has been excommunicated from the Mormon Church, and his efforts to help his mother, a member of a polygamous sect who has been accused of killing her husband.  The problem is that in the book the character of Jordan was ex-communicated because he was gay.  A crucial part of the storyline that Lifetime changed by making the character of Jordan straight.  Author David Ebershoff states:   “A few weeks before filming began I learned that Jordan had been rewritten as straight. I was told that this was a network decision. Obviously I was offended, disappointed, and baffled. I hope that the movie sends people to the book so that they can meet my Jordan, along with his boyfriend, Tom, and their dogs, Elektra and Joey.”  Mindboggeling.  Lifetime does know that it airs Project Runway and besides that many gay men watch their channel right?  Idiots.

Rafael Nadal wins U.S. Open, rules the tennis universe.  All fall on your knees before Rafeal!  Is that a problem for anyone?  (Nice butt Rafael!)

A Texas named Mark Zable has invented FRIED BEER!  Homer Simpson will be SO stoked!

*  George Michael was sentenced to eight weeks in prison for driving while under the influence of drugs.. He’ll spend four weeks in jail, and four on parole.  I bet he’ll hate to leave jail.  Such a large “dating” pool for him.

*  A&E’s Paranormal State host Ryan Buell comes out as bisexual in his new book!  Hmmm, welcome Ryan could you please now communicate and  bring back cutie Sergey Poberezhny

Sourdough bread, white truffle cheese, 100-year-old balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil, cheese, quail’s egg, heirloom black tomato, epicure apple, and dried figs sandwich,  $178 dollars created by Brit celebrity chef Martin Blunos .  100 year old vending machine cheese sandwich at the office. $2.50.  Do the math!

What’s "Too Gay" Today? – Taylor Lautner Is A Diva!, George Michael Pleads Guilty, John Barrowman Sells His Used Undies? Bristol Palin STFU!, and True Blood’s Layfette Was Better As A Slut.

*  Oh how quickly they grow and become self important.  Taylor Lautner has filed a lawsuit Monday against McMahon’s RV in Los Angeles for “emotional distress,” since the custom trailer (s)he ordered didn’t arrive on time to the set of one of her new movies, “Abduction”.  Well that answers the question everyone has been asking.  Because how  many straight guys sue over “emotional distress“?

George Micheal has pleaded guilty to driving under the influence and being in possession of drugs, which will now be called “pulling a George Michael”  Looks like Geoirgie will have his dance card all booked up in the coming months with dates and catching up with Boy george in the slammer so all you “tearoom queens” out there are safe…..for now.

*  John Barrowman holding a two-day “USA garage sale” at his £750,000 ocean view home to “clear out a load of old junk”, he insisted he will remain in Wales.  Everything must go – spread the word,” urged the flyer.  Barrowman, who plays Captain Jack Harkness in the Doctor Who spin-off, was on hand to sign every item on sale for an extra £1 on the ticket price – with a percentage of the proceeds going to local children’s hospice T Hafan.  Bravo Captian Jack!

*  Bristol Palin gets $14,000 as a speaking fee. . So, how much to shut the stupid inbred bitch up?

Nelsan Ellis says he never wanted Lafayette’s romance with Jesus (Kevin Alejandro) on True Blood, because he thinks Lafayette works better as a prostitute and a dealer. True dat, bitch!

What’s "Too Gay" Today? – "Haven’s" Eric Balfour Exhibitionist Extrodinaire’!, Gay Marriage Giant Cock Graph, George Michael Arrested For Pot AGAIN, and Paul Koering Gets Screwed!

* SyFy Channel’s Eric Balfour of “Haven” is far from shy when it comes to showing off his body.  Raised by nudist family Eric also claims he’s never has owned a pair of underwear.  (Swing along little doggy.  Swing along)

*  Paul Koering, the closted gay Minnesota state senator who was outed and then still who supported MN’s ban on same-sex marriage has last MN’s election and been unseated.  (HAHA Bitch.)

*  George Michael has been arrested for pot once again and also faces DUI charges. The arrest report will look nice next to his framed copy of summer’s paperwork, which details his Range Rover crash into a storefront..  Yaaaaawn.  This story is so 2006.

*  Nate Silver’s NEW chart graph for America’s support of gay marriage ironically looks like a giant COCK!

George Michael Has A New Smash….His Car Right Into The Front Of A Photo Lab Shop In London! WHAM!

Openly gay singer George Michael has been arrested (once again) after crashing his car into a Photo Lab Shop called Snappy Snaps in Hampstead, north London

The incident happened in the early hours of Sunday morning as the Micheals was returning from London’s Gay Pride parade.

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson states: “Police were called at approximately 03:35hrs on Sunday 4 July to reports of a vehicle in collision with a building on Hampstead High Street. Officers attended and a man in his 40s was arrested on suspicion of being unfit to drive. He was not breathalysed and insisted to officers he had not been drinking. However, he is thought to have been tested for drugs at a north London police station then later bailed out to return during August pending further inquiries.”

George Michael Joins The 21st Century – Stops Cruising Restrooms and Starts Cruising The Internet On GRINDR

Probably tired of being busted George Michael the pop singer, famous for getting arrested cruising for sex in a public toilet, is now on Grindr, a location-based iPhone app that allows gay men to meet up via their phones. And he’s terrorizing Australia’s gays with it.

On a recent vacation down under, it appears Michael logged on to the service under the profile “Back for Wood” and contacted several men.  Fortunately, since Grindr displays where a user is located, it should be easier than ever to stay out of his way
