Cool. He deserves it.
Gareth Thomas has won Gaydar Radio’s Celebrity of the Year 2012 award, beating out such notables as Lady Gaga and Neil Patrick Harris.
Gaydar Radio listeners also picked Thomas over television personalities Alan Carr and Graham Norton.
The 37-year-old Thomas, who retired from rugby late last year, publicly acknowledged he is gay in 2009, becoming one of only a handful of professional athletes who have come out gay during their careers.
Speaking to Gaydar Radio hosts Neil Sexton and Debbie Ryan, Thomas credited having a strong support system for giving him the strength to come out.
Witnesses said the All Black winger suddenly appeared dripping wet and without clothes in Trader Jacks, a popular bar and restaurant, about 10pm on Friday (NZ time).
He was bleeding from a gash to his forehead and wounds on his chest and knees, thought to have happened when he fell off a scooter earlier in the day.
Guildford, 22, first punched one man in the bar who asked him if he needed help. The All Black then staggered to the bar and hit Australian Nick Cox across the back of the head.
SOUNDS LIKE A TYPICAL 22 YEAR OLD. AND A TYPICAL KIWI MALE. I FOUND HIS RECENT ‘SHAMING ON TV FOR GOING OUT AND GETTING PISSED AFTER A GAME’ REALLY FOUL. OH BOO FUCKING HOO HE GOT TOASTED AFTER CARRYING THE ALL BLACKS TO VICTORY. NORMAL MAN.
LEAVE MY ZAC ALONE. AND ZAC AND FRIENDS, KEEP THE NONG UNDER CONTROL. AND ZAC SMOKE DOPE DUDE. FAR BETTER FOR YOU.
WTF???? FROM PINK NEWS……..
A rugby player who suffered a stroke after a gym accident woke up gay, he claims.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Chris Birch said it started his transformation from a “19st skinhead to an 11st preened man”.
Chris said: “It sounds strange but when I came round I immediately felt different.
“I wasn’t interested in women any more. I was definitely gay.
“I had never been attracted to a man before – I’d never even had any gay friends. But I didn’t care about who I was before, I had to be true to my feelings.”
Chris retrained as a hairdresser and he now lives with his partner Jack Powell, 19, above the salon where he works.
A neurologist said the changes in his personality could be due to the stroke opening up another part of his brain.
Stroke Association spokesman Joe Korner said: “Whether or not the stroke turned Chris gay, or whether he was gay anyway but unaware of it, his experience seems to be a positive one, which is great.”
VERY ‘I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS’….
