As I mentioned above it would seem he had an interest in procuring sex in public toilets, I expect that is a fetish of some sort amongst gay men. In order to protect himself from one or some of the men perhaps attempting to blackmail him after he made quite a bit of money from the Catholic church and became more prominent in the media as the head of shamnesty to say he worked as a prostitute while ages 17 would discourage any of those to attempt to blackmail him or otherwise bother him as he would claim they solicited him for sex.
He claims that his being homeless and a prostitute ( a victim) was as a result if his relationship with the priest fortune but but he also claims that he was sexually abused by an older man and older boy for years before he met fortune. A lot of his stories don't add up just as the Soros funding one.
I was really broke when I was at University- I squatted most of the time so I guess I was technically homeless and often enough ate at soup kitchens. Girls that I was studying with did get into stripping and "escorting" in order to pay bills and materially were a lot more secure and comfy than I was but I watched the effect of them doing that stuff had on their personalities which confirmed me in my resolution not to touch those jobs. So having been in the situation he claims to have been in and not prostituted myself I don't feel any pity for him at all- I'm sure there are loads of millennials in particular have been in similar situations and not prostituted. Remember this is a man who puts himself as a moral guide and a paragon of virtue which makes the whole thing even more gross.

the Herald headline “…Colm O'Gorman has spoken out about his past as a child prostitute.” Seems a bit OTT

Haven’t read the book and I admit I don’t have all the details, I don’t see how he was “forced”, as a student, most things we choose admittedly sometimes badly, personally I think he may have been uncertain of his sexuality or maybe looking for a father figure, of course prostitution is illegal but COG seems to decide what laws apply. I also find it strange that as an advocate of civil liberties he has failed to name the first two abusers for all we know they may still be offending.

"THE director of One in Four, Colm O'Gorman, who threatened to close the victims-of-abuse organisation last week because of lack of funds, is on a salary of ?80,000 a year.

Mr O'Gorman, who also employs a full-time personal assistant, courageously revealed himself as a victim of Wexford paedophile priest Fr Sean Fortune, before he established One in Four in Ireland in May 2002.

But last Thursday week he put the organisation's permanent staff on notice of redundancy after the Department of Health and Children declined to provide an extra ?81,000 for its counselling programme. Mr O'Gorman maintains that the department agreed to this funding after discussions last March.
At a meeting in May, 2002, One in Four agreed funding with the Department of Health of ?633,000, of which ?208,000 was made available to the original organisation in Britain "to assist it in dealing with calls from Ireland".

Of the remaining funding, ?302,000 was spent on salaries for its staff; ?79,000 was spent on renting and refurbishing offices in Dublin's Holles Street; ?5,000 was spent on recruitment and ?8,000 on volunteers.
The remainder, an estimated ?25,000, went onexpenses.

Last week, Colm O'Gorman called a press conference to announce that the organisation would be closing down. It now appears that One in Four will survive until further public funding is made available; a donation of ?40,000 has been made by rock band U2 and its manager Paul McGuinness, and other donations were made by the public.
Mr O'Gorman defended the salaries of the five permanent staff of One in Four, saying that the organisation was "highly cost-effective" and "the salaries are clearly deserved and significantly lower than others in the sector"....."

One in Four head Colm O'Gorman earns ?80k a year - Independent.ie

Nice work if you can get it eh?
