More Gareth…..

Today’s Link

After posting about Gareth Thomas entering Celebrity Big Brother the other day and saying how important it is for us to be visible, it seems that also can inspire homophobia.

A football (soccer) player from a UK team posted the tweet referenced in this article shortly afterwards.  It is pretty clear that tweet directly references something derogatory about being gay and being next to Gareth.  What a shame that someone feels so insecure in his own sexuality that he has to put someone elses down.  Clearly there is still much to be done to combat homophobia in sport.  It has always been visible from the so-called fans but evidently it is alive and kicking in the sports persons head as well.

Big love,
