Good for you Brian Boitano!


Brian Boitano

Brian Boitano FINALLY comes out ūüôā Guuurl. So this is fabulous news for several reasons. ¬†Obviously, it is always great news when someone comes out. ¬†There is strength in numbers folks. ¬†A simple but very true concept. ¬†The other exciting thing here is that this makes him the third openly gay athlete appointed by President Obama as a delegate for the winter Olympics in Russia. ¬†

Here is what BOItano had to say to The Huffington Post.¬†¬†“It is my desire to be defined by my achievements and my contributions,”. ¬†“While I am proud to play a public role in representing the American Olympic Delegation as a former Olympic athlete, I have always reserved my private life for my family and friends and will continue to do so.”

“I am many things: a son, a brother, and uncle, a friend, an athlete, a cook, an author, and being gay is just one part of who I am,”. ¬†“First and foremost I am an American athlete and I am proud to live in a country that encourages diversity, openness and tolerance. As an athlete, I hope we can remain focused on the Olympic spirit which celebrates achievement in sport by peoples of all nations.”



That is all.  Kisses!
