Man Crush Monday Big Brother 16's Cody Calafiore

This week’s gaysocialites.blog Man Crush Monday is on Big Brother 16’s heart throb Cody Calafiore.

On this summer’s season of Big Brother Cody has used his good looks and charm to win over most of the women in the game and has even been caught cuddling with and getting humped by openly gay houseguest Frankie Grande.

Calafiore has also been bold by stripping down in front of the cameras that record every move inside the Big Brother house and stream them the video live on the internet, but before he entered the house Cody was known for his hot body and good looks.  His resume includes work as a model and a professional soccer player.  We’ve got pictures of our Monday Man Crush, Cody Calafiore, in action here:

An FBI contact of Estler’s, who aids in the rescue of some of these children, estimates 200,000, with the average age being as young as 12.

Between 1.6 and 2.8 million children run away from home each year.  1/3 of these children will be approached by a pimp or trafficker within the first 48 hrs of running away.

More statistics from the Department of Justice and other organizations can be found here.

Thomas Estler has found a novel way to contribute to the fight against human trafficking.  That contribution is through a not-so-little Manga comic book called Abolitionista!.  In an interview with Gay Socialites, Thomas Estler gives us insight into how the comic book was created and its empowering message!
