This was an incredible year for GLBT people in sports, with so many of them coming out publicly. From Outsports' tally, 108 athletes, coaches, officials, sports administrators and sports media members came out to the world in 2014. And as we did initially with our list last year, we're sure we missed a couple (let us know if we did). Our list contains current high school athletes and coaches, and current and former college and professional athletes, coaches and administrators, along with sports folk in the media, who came out publicly in 2014. All told, 34 sports saw at least one person come out publicly. We had six coaches, four front-office execs, three members of the media ...

One scene from a leaked version of 'The Interview' script may show why North Korea was so upset about the film's release. It seems that in addition to making the relationship between North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un and the character played by James Franco somewhat homoerotic, the men also participate in an orgy at one point. What's more, in another scene, the character played by Seth Rogan explains how talented Jong-Un is when it comes to oral sex - on a man. It is still uncertain if these scenes made it to the final cut of the film, but according to ...

Ansel Elgort has come out publicly - as straight. The twenty year old, best known for 'Fault In Our Stars', is playing gay pianist Van Cilburn in an upcoming biopic and took to Twitter this week to separate fact from fiction. "Just in case it isn't clear ... I like girls. A lot," he tweeted to his 2.4 million followers. But he also made clear in a follow-up tweet that he doesn't think there's anything wrong with being gay. "Also let me say if I was gay I wouldn't hide it. Being gay or straight isn't bad or good, it just is. You are who you are. Be true to yourself." Elgort is a rising star who growing list of ...

Thirty-year-old Nick Malceski is a professional Australian Rules Footballer for the AFL. Malceski is a Macedonian Australian and was recruited from the Eastern Rangers by the Sydney Swans in the 2002 AFL draft. In his first year at the club, the talented midfielder played in the Wizard Home Loans Cup, where he impressed coaching staff with his magnificent disposal skills on both sides of his body and excellent decision-making abilities in both attack and defence. Malceski was part of the Sydney Swans team which won the 2012 AFL Grand Final, where he kicked his sides's first and last goals of the match through miraculous snap shots. In October this year, Malceski signed a three-year deal with the ...
Of all places in the world, peaceful and safe Sydney was the site of a saddening, maddening siege this week that left two innocent hostages dead. The people of Sydney have shown their true colors in the aftermath, making #illridewithyou go viral - to show  solidarity with Muslim Australians who feel shunned or bullied wearing their hijabs and burkas. Even the victims families have appeared with religious leaders at the memorial in Martin Place.

In addition to sorrow for Tori Johnson and Katrina Dawson and their families, I am sorry for this peaceful civilized people having to grapple with the fact that some immigrants will never assimilate to their peaceful way of life. Liberal, welcoming Sweden is facing tough choices between their values and continuing to import those who will never share their values – for if they don't compromise now they might lose their whole society later. It is an unfortunate conversation, but it is a conversation ...

The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras is one on the world’s most well-known and loved LGBT celebrations. It’s a spectacle of colour, glamour and undeniably hedonistic fun. But for people who live in the northern hemisphere, is it worth the time, cost and effort it takes to travel to the land Down Under? The answer, in […]
