Welcome to Orlando Cruz, a 31-year-old gay man who has come out of the closet and everything. So far, so… oh, finish that sentence for us, someone.
He has made the hallowed pages of this dolly publication because not only is he an out gay man, but he is a professional sports person. Who is out! His sport of choice is featherweight boxing, which means not only is he as light as a feather, but he’s ripe for a cameo in a Triga movie, perhaps called Boxing Bottoms. Or Buggery Boxers. Or Boxer on a Hot Top Roof. Or, Is That A Penis In Your Shorts Or Are You Just A Lightweight?
‘I’ve been fighting for more than 24 years and as I continue my ascendant career, I want to be true to myself,’ says Orlando, 31, gay.
‘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.’
Orlando Cruz? Drop trou’ and take a bow!
