Jimmy Anderson, Straight Cricket Player Goes Gay

Is it still a big deal when famous heteros appear on the covers of gay magazines? How about when those famous heteros are married-with-children sports stars from the uber-masculine world of cricket?

Jimmy Anderson, the British cricket player, will pose naked (albeit covered up enough not to make things X-rated) for Attitude, making him the first person from his sport to do so, but the sixth athlete — after Vinnie Jones, David Beckham, Ben Cohen, Freddie Ljungberg, and Gareth Thomas.

    Nothing new and nothing brave here. Just another haterosexual the main interest of a purported gay magazine.

    @Heh: So funny. I did think… Cricket? Masculine?

  • hephaestion

    Why does the headline of this article say he’s going gay? What a dumb-ass thing to do… since it is not true.
