An inspiration for gay aspiring athletes and a challenge for similarly oriented maruee athletes to do the sameGerry B s Book Reviews I doubt there is a gay person out there who can not relate to Mark Tewksbury s autobiography Inside out Straight Talk from a Gay Jock Wiley 1 edition 2007 That is until he was propelled into international prominence with his 1992 Olympic gold medal performance in Barcelona Spain one of only seven gold medals awarded to a Canadian athlete that yearUntil then however his story is almost pro forma Included are his family and his generally unhappy childhood his early same sex infatuations the prevailing fear of exposure yet being centred out as gay anyway proving I suppose that the closet has see through walls at times and the mindless abuse he suffered on account of it Through it all however his will to achieve never faltered and it is this that makes his story truly inspirationalAnother inspirational aspect is his steadfast ability to remain true to himself ie I gazed around the room slowly The best swimmers from Russia Cuba the United States Spain Germany and France were in front of me And I was different I was the fag And in that moment I owned my truth completely I thought If these guys knew how hard it was for me to get here they wouldn t believe it They have no bloody clue what I have been through Or how strong I am Having said that however the second half of the story is both informative and redundant respecting the International Olympic Committee and its politics given what was known about it even when the story was first published in 2007 Likewise the discord with the Gay Olympics GayGames OutGames came as no surprise Sexual orientation does not preclude ideological differences personal agendas pecuniary influence and rabid infighting In this respect it conforms uite congruently with the wider communityAlbeit that is the reality of Mark Tewksbury s experience and for his part he can only be faulted for trying to crowd all of this into one story Nonetheless I can enthusiastically recommend this story as an inspiration for aspiring gay athletes and a challenge to similarly oriented maruee athletes to do the same Four stars
