A long time native of Toronto, Canada, UrbanGuyTO (SpandexGear) was invited by turnipHed to begin blogging about their mutual interest in LGBT issues, men’s underwear and swimwear! Loud, often opinionated you’ll always find UrbanGuyTO ready to engage in a friendly and open, non-judgemental discussion about any fetish, kink and sex-positive topic of interest to the LGBT community.

turnipHed and I talked about it. Many are blogging about it. Even more are acting on it.
There’s a lot of questions and concerns about what is going on with the Olympics these days and why a so-called international organization that is built on principles of equality and freedom and self- expression and peace is not more outspoken about a host city and a host nation that is clearly none of of those things.
“Any form of discrimination with regard to a country or a person on grounds of race, religion, politics, gender or otherwise is incompatible with belonging to the Olympic Movement.”
Watch the Olympics. Don’t watch the Olympics. I really don’t care. But get informed. Don’t be a zombie and start supporting something you know nothing about. While we’re all drinking the happiness-juice the Olympics likes to foster, there are serious atrocities going on in Russia and in Sochi.
From the Russian’s editing the opening ceremony blunders to the American’s editing out equality statements by the IOC president (( Read about it here)), there’s a lot of smoke screening and doctored programming going on right now and you need to be better informed if you’re going to continue to support an organization and an event that condones such tactics. You’re blind support is an injustice to those who are suffering right now in Russia.
So while you’re enjoying your beer watching curling or having a joint while watching snowboarding, please take a few minutes to learn just what it is that you’re supporting when you say your an Olympic fan.
NOTE: Looking to learn a bit more about what the climate is really like in Russia right now if you are gay, lesbian or trans? Have a look at this great (and disturbing) documentary called “Dispatches – Hunted”.
