How Gabe Kapler’s body image helped gay male sports fans

Boston Red SoxI wanted to highlight an article about body image and feeling comfortable in your own skin after reading an article earlier this month on the OUT Sports blog which featured former Red Sox outfielder and the next manager of the professional baseball team, Philadelphia Phillies.

Gabe “The Babe” Kapler (as I often referred to him) was featured in the blog’s post, Why new Phillies manager Gabe Kapler was important to gay male sports fansWhile I don’t know if I agree with all their points, I do agree that Gabe has an amazing body and has always been happy to pose shirtless. In an age where athletes continue to train to build endurance and avoid injury, Kapler was the rare professional baseball player with a great physique who liked to show it off.  While he is happily married with two teenage children, if my memory serves me correct he was a great advocate for his wife when she spoke out about domestic violence (something she had to contend with in a previous relationship) in addition to being socially accepting of LGBTQ issues.

What to do this week: Nov 27 – Dec 4

Steve Grand, ChristmasBe sure to get out and enjoy one or more of these select events that I’ve shared below. There is a little bit of something for everyone. This week Hillary Clinton comes to Boston for one night, but if politics isn’t your thing you can check out the Mass Bears and Cubs Bear & Cub Social at Cathedral Station, Atomic Karaoke at Club Cafe and Queer Boston Board Gamers later this week.

Holly Folly weekend starts on Friday in Provincetown (but more on that later this week), several World AIDS days events take place on Friday including Strike a Pose For World AIDS Day and a World AIDS Day at The State House. For some bawdy humor check out the SlutCracker which opens on Friday and runs through December 31. Lastly close your weekend by attending the first Boibutter Brunch at Trophy Room on Sunday.
