FROM YOUR LIPS TO GOD’S EARS!! I wish Wells was queer (and, of course, in to me), but if statistics are correct, there is an 80% chance he is straight, a 10% chance he is bi, and only a 10% chance he is "straight up queer."
Frankly, I am disappointed that one of the few truly global sports has no prominent openly gay professional player. Soccer is a gay sport – and I don’t say that derogatorily. It just simply is a sport that attracts gay men -- so many of them who are into the players, who are into the game or, who are like me, into both. And don’t get me started with the lesbians – the lesbian goalkeeper is almost a cliche.
Statistically there HAS to be gay players at the highest level (Christiano Ronaldo, baby, it’s time to come out of the closet). Yet, none have come forward to simply acknowledge that they have boyfriends, or are into guys. This is short-sighted because a lot of gay athletes and sports fans want to see themselves reflected in the teams they support.
Just looking at the Revs alone, there is a lot of potential to market the sport to gay men. Jay Heaps and Taylor Twellman are already VERY popular with gay guys who otherwise are not into sports, but like them because, well, they’re hot. Of the two, Heaps would seem to be the most comfortable about being a gay icon – he has been into high fashion for years, and definitely is a meterosexual. If the Revs want to actually be revolutionary, perhaps a high-quality beefcake calendar could be put together that could be enjoyed by both straight women and gay men.
