Thanks to his always stunning, often partially-nude modeling photos, former Marine Alex Minsky has long been a favorite with Queerty readers. Now Southern California’s KTLA news has caught up and profiled the photogenic 25-year-old, who lost his right leg while stationed in Afghanistan. Some of Minsky’s more ardent admirers already his back story: The military vet returned to the U.S. after the accident and, after conquering a brief but torrid love affair with the bottle, began a rigid workout regimen to regain his physical and mental health. Fate intervened when a photographer noticed the tattoo-covered Minsky leaving the gym and when he realized it wasn’t just a typical pickup line from an amorous gay, an unlikely modeling career was born.
H/t: First To Know
@Rockery: Agreed. Minsky is hot hot hot, but gay idol status should be put on hold until we learn more about his stances on freedom and equality.
1. I don’t mean to speak for jwtraveler. But his obvious hostility comes from the people he’s replying to. Aaron who made an innocent comment but has undertones of unnecessary pity. And viveutvivas who made a dickish comment.
Also Darkeszephyr, you said, “Just another gay guy”? Did he really have to word it that way?” How else should he word it? I mean come on, he’s not literary scholar, just some guy. If you read homophobia into that statement then you’re either way too sensitive or just looking to be offended.
Who is calling this guy an ally? He’s just a hot piece of ass to admire. He’s getting a lot of attention from gay entertainment sites because he’s way hot. That’s it. He gets mainstream attention because he’s a vet with a missing limb. It’s i guess inspirational.
@stranded: Who is saying anybody is calling this guy an ally?
People are asking what mandates this particular hot guy being featured multiple times on a gay website. He’s not the only hot guy in the world — why him?
