Boxer Orlando Cruz Wins 2nd Match Since Coming Out While Wearing Rainbow Kilt as Sign of Gay Pride

Cruz

Professional boxer Orlando Cruz, who came out of the closet last October, last night won his second match since coming out against Aaron "The Bomber" Martinez in a 6th round TKO, and did so in a rainbow kilt, Blabbeando reports:

He dedicated the fight to a number of people including his trainers and he almost couldn't contain his emotions as he thanked his grandmother who passed away last year. He also thanked the LGBT community for their support. 

During the fight he wore a multicolor boxing kilt with Puerto Rican flags on both sides. One of the flags was red, white and blue, the other flag's stripes reflected the color of the rainbow as a sign of gay pride.

Boxer Orlando Cruz gave an on-camera interview to HBO sports' Jon Frankel for a 'Real Sports' special last night exploring why athletes in the big four sports are so reluctant to reveal their sexual orientation until after their playing days.

In this clip, Cruz talks about the fear he felt as a closeted gay man. He said he would cry at home before and after the gym. He says he came out because he wanted to gain respect, and now he has it:

"[I'm] very, very happy. I am free."

With an odd video for Complex magazine to accompany the shot and quote I posted yesterday:

When asked about a recent V magazine shoot in which critics thought he looked feminine, Bieber is coolly dismissive. “Every guy has feminine qualities,” he says. “You’re raised by your mother and father, and I was raised mostly by my mother. I think the pictures turned out good—so whatever.”
