Men of Twitter

BosGuyEach Monday I post #MenOfTwitter profiles of men who catch my eye and whom I think you may enjoy following.  This month I’m featuring Twitter profiles of men who are lending their voice and influence to fight for greater equality. Earlier this month I included names of actors and political activists.  This week I’m featuring two athletes who have raised awareness about homophobia.

Brian Sims for PennsylvaniaSims4PA – Brian Sims is originally from D.C. and this former college athlete has a unique distinction of being the only openly gay football captain in NCAA history.  After graduating he went on to get his J.D. and then serve as the President of Equality PA, and as the Chairman of the Gay and Lesbian Lawyers of Philadelphia (GALLOP), until he stepped down from both positions in 2011.  He is now running for the PA House of Representatives.

Matt MitchamMatthew_Mitcham – Matthew is an  Australian diver who many first became aware of when he won 10M diving event at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics.  Matthew was also one of the few openly gay athletes competing in the 2008 Summer Olympics. You will be able to see more of Matthew in a few weeks when he competes for Australia at the London Summer Olympic Games.
