Golf Is So Gay: Homoerotic Moments in the World of Golf (posted 19 August 2009, Last updated: July 10, 2020 at 2:56 am). Of course the golfing world can be so gay sometimes. Although it is an individual and somewhat conservative sport, golf has offered us some moments where the only thing to say is, “that is so gay”.
So we are writing this post as the world of golf’s contribution to our Sports Is So Gay series. Let us begin with probably the funniest image to come out from a golf course. As you can see, it is the great Phil Mickelson giving us the “O” face with a guy behind him who appears to sharing this moment of ecstasy. If this ain’t gay, then we don’t know what is.
Gay Wrestlers List: College, Amateur, Pro, WWE. When we were researching our post on Jake Atlas, the names of other gay wrestlers kept cropping up so we decided to make this list of male wrestlers who belong to the LGBTQ community. Note that we are using the world wrestler in its broadest terms so the list ranges from college grapplers to those who made it to the biggest stage, WWE.
Darren Young has earned the distinction as, in the words of wikipedia, “the first professional wrestler ever to publicly come out while still signed to WWE.” Interestingly, his 2013 coming out may have been impromptu, as he simply answered a question by a TMZ cameraman whether a gay wrestler will ever be successful in WWE. His answer: “Absolutely. Look at me. I’m a WWE superstar and to be honest with you, I’ll tell you right now, I’m gay. And I’m happy. I’m very happy.”
Rugby is So Gay: Rugby Players’ Intimate Moments. Is the photo below the greatest photo ever in the history of sports journalism? Nah. Not really. The greatest sports photo ever should have Muhammad Ali in it. Hehe. However, this photo is a great sports photograph.
It is also cool and funny enough to add to our Sports Is So Gay series. For those of you who missed our previous entries for the Sports Is So Gay series, check out our posts on the following sports: golf, basketball, baseball, hockey, and American football. Our favorite of them all, not surprisingly, involves wrestling.
Basketball Is So Gay: Photos, Rumors, Allegations. We know already that football is so gay, that mixed martial arts is so gay, and that rugby is so gay. Now, let’s add basketball in our list of sports that are so gay.
Gay NFL Players: Out or Rumored Gay American Football Jocks. Are there actually gay American football players whether active or retired and whether professional or college footballers? Of course there are, here’s some of them:
Ed Gallagher: Offensive tackle for the University of Pittsburgh. He tried to commit suicide as he struggled against his homosexuality. He survived the attempt but became a paraplegic as a result. He went on to become an author and public speaker focusing on disabilities and homosexuality.
David Kopay: NFL running back who played for various teams such as the San Francisco 49ers, the Washington Redskins, and the Green Bay Packers. He came out after he retired from the NFL. He revealed that he had a relationship with fellow footballer Jerry Smith.
Hockey Is So Gay (2017 Update). From the time we posted our original post below, some “gayish” things have been happening in the world of hockey so we decided to update this post. We start with these unintentional (or maybe they are intentional) gay kissin’ photos.
Brad May kissing another hockey player. We’ve been trying to ID the other guy but haven’t come up with a name. If you know Brad’s kissin’ buddy, please do tell in the comments.
