!! OMG, true champion: Pro boxer Orlando Cruz comes out !!


2012-10-03-orlando-cruz-4_3_r560.jpg

I can't think of any sport more closely associated with the traditional ideas of masculinity than professional boxing. And so it is no small thing for pro boxer Orlando Cruz to come out of the closet with the following statement:

"I've been fighting for more than 24 years and as I continue my ascendant career, I want to be true to myself. I want to try to be the best role model I can be for kids who might look into boxing as a sport and a professional career. I have and will always be a proud Puerto Rican. I have always been and always will be a proud gay man."
