If we're going to be honest I had never heard of Colby Melvin. It's impossible to follow everyone in the LGBT culture and to me he was just another pretty face. But I took the time to read the article published by Queerty. The article talks about his coming out in conservative Alabama, the pressures of modeling, being a young gay man, HIV testing, and some other interesting topics.
When I first came out I was scared to get tested. I hadn’t really received much education on how to take care of myself. Over the years I’ve learned and become much more comfortable talking with my doctor and regularly getting checked. Colby Melvin
Regardless if you're a fan of following young gay men or not. I found this article to very open and interesting. We tend to forget that while they have amazing bodies, they are for all intents and purposes people.
