If Australian underwear company Aussiebum is prepared to sponsor their Olympic gold-medal-winning compatriot, should UK sports fans start a campaign to get Marks & Sparks’ St Michaels brand to sponsor Lee Pearson, the multi-gold winning Paralympian from Team GB, who’s already told Clare Balding on TV that he has a spectacular bum?
Oops, forgot to mention that Lee Pearson is openly gay, too
Good for Aussiebum. Their swimsuits are cool, and Matthew Mitcham’s coming out is great for all other GLBT athletes. Openly GLBT athletes are still rare, and unfortunately it’s still for a reason.
Homophobia in sports is still there, but it is being challenged, and
that is a huge first step!
