Alexandre Despatie Back in Winning Form


This one’s for the Alexandre Despatie fans out there. The French-Canadian diver fetched the silver medal with his partner Arturo Miranda in the men’s three-metre synchronized diving final at the world aquatics championships in Melbourne yesterday.

Despatie says he is fully recovered from a neck injury that kept him from competing for over a year.


In November, however, he was recovered enough to teach show gay Canadian Commentator Rick Mercer the way off the high platform.

    I’m so relieved when hot athletes win, because I can pretend that I like them because they’re talented and not because they’re sleek and naked.

    I thought the post was great, like all the others, but I just wanted to thank the creator and contributors to this blog. I read it every day and it is sincerely a breath of fresh air. I can’t think of any other blog I’ve read that allows me to remain informed and stay connected to the community and our ever-evolving society. Thanks so much!

    k, I don’t want to get all misty but I have to second Keiths’ comment. My bff made me start reading Towleroad and it is now a 5times a day thing. I don’t know how you keep updating content! I never would have heard of MADE IN BRAZIL or THE SARTORIALIST if I didn’t read TOWLEROAD. I now bug my friends (esp Straight) to read it and now they are all loyal fans!

    Keep it up.

    Btw, can this diver guy come to my house? I can’t swim. I’m sure he could teach me a few things. Or learn some from me.
