Gay Aussie Diver Slams Rudd’s Nup Stance

Gay Australian Olympic diver Matthew Mitcham, who came out last month, doesn’t appreciate Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s exclusive marital politics:

[Mitcham] certainly bears the markings of a good gay role model: he’s successful, attractive and he’s not shy about speaking up on queer issues. When asked for his view on same-sex marriage, for instance, he has no compunction slamming Prime Minister Kevin Rudd.

“I’m not happy with Kevin Rudd,” he says, bluntly. “Kevin Rudd’s opinion of marriage as something that’s only between a man and a woman is quite narrow-minded. During the election campaign he was all about appearing young and cool, but his views on gay marriage make him look quite old-fashioned.”

That’s because he is…

      If it means posting new pics of him with each posting, I’m also interested in learning Mitcham’s opinions on: human rights in China, the occupation of Iraq, capital gains tax rates, Brad and Angelina, Madonna and Guy, and that new high-tech Speedo everybody’s talking about these days.

      I am with Oneway on this.

      We also need mathew mitcham’s opinion on the price of vegetables, global warming and anything else that reveals his flesh.

      you could also enquire if he likes to play strip poker

      Right on Mitcham ! If only more out people in the spotlight were as sincere as him. The similarities are between their Prime Minister when he was campaigning and the Democratic candidate over here couldn’t be more clearer:

      “During the election campaign he was all about appearing young and cool, but his views on gay marriage make him look quite old-fashioned.”

      “Srsly, another guy who looks like Lucas from the Corbin Fisher site (at least in that shot).”

      Well, there *are* a couple of differences – he looks happy with himself, life, and where he’s at. Lucas? Not so much.

      Now, now.

      I saw a recent clip of Lucas getting down with a new model (a black dude named Dante) + he seemed plenty happy at the time.

      Wait, wait, wait, wait.

      Back up.

      A *black* model? On Corbin Fisher?

      I call BS!

      As for Lucas being looking happy now – great. I always got this weird, sad vibe from him though. Seriously creepy.

      That is, being or looking.

      haha

      Walsingham, Dante isn’t the first black model on Corbin Fisher. There was also the very handsome Marcus. He did a movie with Logan + one w/ Kyle. I’m not sure about any beyond that but I’ve seen quite a few of the C.F. flicks.
