ABDB Ep. 60 Footnote: In Cruz Control Duane, Rick & Will chatted on homosexuality & homophobia in sports, especially on relevance of any athlete/person feeling obligated to announce their sexual preference to the consuming audience. In Orlando Cruz, we see the first professional boxer to out himself.

We also give props to Cruz’ first opponent since coming out, Jorge Pazos, who could have easily succumbed to a general conditioning about homosexuality, especially in light of the hypermasculinity of sport. Salute!
