Matthew Mitcham announced as Feast Festival ambassador

Just days after swimming legend Ian Thorpe won the love and support of the nation by coming out as gay, another Australian Olympian is publicly flying the flag for gay and lesbian acceptance, with champion diver Matthew Mitcham announced as official ambassador for the 2014 Feast Festival.

The openly gay athlete, who smashed records at the 2008 Beijing Olympics as the first Australian male diver to win gold since 1924 and the only diver in Olympic history to score a perfect 10 from every judge, will be the official face of the the LGBITQ arts festival on in Adelaide from November 15 to 30.

Currently preparing for the XX Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, 26-year-old Mitcham is also a talented singer and musician and will bring his solo cabaret show “Twists and Turns” to the festival.

Merry Christmas from Matt :)

Exciting News!

Twists and Turns is getting turned into a cabaret show!

It’s currently scheduled to be premiere in February next year, and will tour around Perth, Sydney, and Melbourne. 

They’ve already reached their funding goal, but more money raised means a more fabulous show! Plus, you can still get a signed pair of Funky Trunks for $100 :O

klainergasm asked: I just attended a Rainbow Dinner and had the honour of sharing a table with this incredible man! He was interviewed on stage and was very open and honest about the things he talked about in his book and life. He is truly an inspiration and I feel very lucky that I got to meet him.

That’s so awesome!

Have any other followers met Matt? 


Matt won the 3m finals at the Asia Pacific Diving Invitational! Looks like the transition from 10m to 3 is going well…

Sochi- I think anyone who cares about gay people should Boycott the Opening and Closing Ceremonies- athletes, fans, TV Coverage, NBC/Broadcasters. I wouldn’t advocate boycotting the Games- that only hurts the athletes, but if Russia gets any worse- I can’t see anything but a Boycott having any impact on them. IOC officals claim they have assurances from Russian officals that no gay athletes or fans will be subjected to the new laws; however, recently - the minister of Russian Sports said this is a lie- if anyone displays ‘gay propaganda’ they WILL be arrested. Gangs of Skin Heads are luring gay men through personal ads, then beating them senseless- all while the police turn a blind eye to it/refuse to prosecute.
