    I really hope they both appear on the maes. Firstly they will be good role models, secondly they will pull in the punters

    I went there for the first time and absolutely adored it! Couples straight & gay, families, friends – thousands of people dedicated to showing their commitment to LGBT equality whilst having a lot of fun! The atmosphere is always immense, but I hope the weather will be as hot & sunny as it was last year. I also hope to meet the great Nigel Owens & Gareth Thomas sho shall be looking out for them!

  3. I don’t believe PinkNews are doing Gareth Thomas any favours by this constant reporting every time he farts! :D

    Yes he has come out, we all get it now! But I see far more important voices not being reported on LGBT issues. Being a publicly visible out person should not instantly make you a community leader.

    Good luck Cardiff Mardi Gras, I hope its a successful event :)

    Abri1975: to an extent I agree. However this is “news” albeit low-key, but moreso than some non-events reported here.

    And he is a positive role model; the last big Welsh name involved in rugby that was (closetted) gay was Max Boyce!

    Is max out now then Mihangel? I know its been gossiped about in Glynneath for years-but I have never seen him officially come out?
    As for Gareth Thomas-I think Abi is underestimating the massive step he has taken in coming out publicly-and also positively standing for equality for gays. He is definitely Hero of the Year as far as I am concerned. No other sportsman has ever done what he has done. He is unique and inspirational for all of us.

  6. i agree Abi. Fer gawd’s sake leave the poor guy alone for a hot minute!!! How on earth he is going to be able to have a relationship is beyond me!! The media’ll be all over him like a rash in a cheap suit!
