Simon 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.
Simon’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.
Thanks to Passport Magazine for sharing this clip.
Caption this photo Similar to last month’s “Caption this photo” post, I feel like this image offers you many opportunities to impress so fire away and share with me a funny caption for this rather ‘hands on’ photo.
I 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.

Sometimes you come across a picture that is actually worth way more than a thousand words. This happens to be one of them.
The Head Of The Charles Regatta (HOCR) is a Boston area tradition that dates back to 1965 and has evolved into a massive two-day rowing competition that draws more than 11,000 athletes and 400,000 spectators. The 2014 HOCR takes place this Saturday and if you’ve not been before or if you don’t already have plans, I’d suggest checking it out.
Head of Charles Regatta – October 18-19
The organizers have created a great website that includes more information about the races, maps and FAQs. You can learn more by visiting the official HOCR website, www.hocr.org.
