We love Ian Thorpe. There, we’ve said it. But we do. So often LGBT+ magazines fawn all over straight sports stars like they’re the Holy Grail – but this one just came out as gay. So yay us!
While many of us have been placing bets on Ian being queer for a while now, it’s great that he feels he can finally speak openly about his sexuality (not that he should have to, of course, but he sets a good example by doing so).
There are many reasons why we love Ian Thorpe, but here are just a few.
1. His moody look
I mean, he could be a film star . . .
2. His rugged look
Damn. Hotter than Satan’s backside during an aerobics competition.
3. His ‘work uniform’ look
Most of us just get to wear a suit to work. Ian gets to wear a pair of these.
I mean, just check out that body!
5. The contemplative look
I love a man who thinks!
6. The ‘I mean business’ look
Swimmer meets Terminator. He’ll be back.
7. The patriotic look
8. The fashionable look
God damn! He could leave that suit on the whole time . . .
9. The unimpressed look
Sissy that walk! Girl got sass.
10. The glistening look
Doesn’t he look so innocent here? The bulge in his pants says otherwise, though.
11. The beardy look
Rub that beard over me like a cheese grater, daddy!
13. The wholesome look
You could totally introduce him to mum.
And the best one yet . . .
14. The cheerful look
Just look at that smile. I’ve officially melted. Just . . . wow!
