Know Your LGBT History - Gays in Sports

As seen by the recent Olympics and the lgbt athletes coming out of the closet, the stereotype about gays not liking sports is bull.

In fact, we excel in it. But let's take a look at  this very good BBC documentary regarding gays in sports:


Past Know Your LGBT History posts:

Wayne Besen makes mincemeat out of the Family Research Council's Peter Sprigg:

Trust me when I say you will need a smoke after watching this video. See what happens when religious right figures are confronted with their lies.

How desperate is NOM to stop marriage equality? This desperate

We now know that the National Organization for Marriage's plan to divide the black and gay communities didn't work because the group is now shifting gears:

According to Buzzfeed:

 The National Organization for Marriage has found the perfect spokespeople for its cause: gay people who oppose gay marriage. The only catch: They're French. NOM has posted a couple videos on its website from a French group called Homovox which features gay men who are against a proposed marriage equality and adoption law introduced by President Fran├žois Hollande. Other groups include "Plus Gay Sans Mariage" (Gayer Without Marriage), run by a young activist named Xavier Bongibault who also appears in one of Homovox's videos. The videos feature gay men talking about why they oppose gay marriage. NOM doesn't identify where the videos came from on its blog, and they've been uploaded into NOM's YouTube account. Homovox didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. 

Sorry but this is just PATHETIC! There is just no other word to describe it.
