Fantasy football

Simon Dunn

Simon Dunn, Gay Bobsledder, Australian Simon DunnSimon Dunn is an out and proud Olympian who competes in the winter sport, bobsledding. He joins a small but growing group of athletes who in recent years have stepped forward while competing.  Simon and his peers are debunking gay stereotypes in their respective sports and in doing so making it easier for others to come out of the closet as well.

gay bobsledder, australian gay athleteSimon’s photographs have been making the round on gay websites since he came out so initially I held off posting until a friend and reader, Jim L., reached out suggesting Simon as a future Furry Friday.  Truth be told, I think Simon would make for a perfect Temptation, Tuesday, Furry Friday, Bonus Fur or Scruffy Sunday post but in the end I wanted to feature him on his own. You can also follow him on Instagram here, instagram.com/bobsleighsimon or on Twitter where he is relatively new, twitter.com/bobsleighsimon.

Thank you Jim for the suggestion.

Michael Sam GQ coverI know that this story broke yesterday but I was busy with work and had no time to share my congratulations to Michael Sam for being one of those honored with a GQ cover for their Men of the Year issue.  I don’t know Michael Sam and I don’t follow football but he is a profile in courage who deserves to be honored and recognized.  Congratulations Michael Sam and best of luck to you in 2015.
