Because the Legislature has ducked its responsibility multiple sessions in a row, we have no choice now but to bring our clients’ legal claims to court.”

Gay Canadian Boxer Mark Leduc Dies of Heat Stroke

A silver medallist in the 1992 Barcelona Olympic games, gay Canadian boxer Mark Leduc was found dead in a Toronto hotel sauna on Sunday, The Star reports:

Leduc "The former light welterweight boxer was expected to fail because he wasn't recognized like other "star" contenders were, said Leduc's brother-in-law, Mark Johnson. 'They thought he would be the worst (on the Canadian team), but he knew how to hit people and not get hit.' And blocking the hits was what the Canadian boxer would continue to do throughout his 47 years. Leduc died at St. Michael's Hospital Wednesday night after he was found unconscious in a local hotel sauna early Sunday morning, Johnson said, adding doctors believe Leduc suffered a heat stroke that damaged his internal organs. 'We were shattered, disoriented, almost in disbelief. We just kept waiting for a miracle to happen,' said Johnson, who had attended Leslie Street Public School with Leduc. 'He's much too young.' ... The Toronto native went pro shortly after his Olympic success and retired after winning the Canadian super lightweight championship in1993. Around that time, Leduc also came out of the closet and was an active advocate for the gay community, speaking out in gay-rights documentaries such as 1994's For the Love of the Game and volunteering for the Toronto People with AIDS Foundation."

But the skin-baring camera hog here is Jesus Luz. Everyone else seems to look slightly displeased.

The photo was shot by Steven Klein at Brooklyn's Gleason's Gym, a well-known boxing gym.
