He might have been voted the hottest man in the world last year, but that doesn’t stop him from being a momma’s boy. No sooner had he touched down in his home town of Sydney, Australia for Mardi Gras yesterday and bobsledder Simon Dunn was put straight to work by his mum – to mow her garden.
Luckily for us, the raging heat in Australia meant that our favourite out Aussie sportsman and columnist trimmed her grass totally shirtless. And my what a sight, eh?
Simon is currently back home in Oz for a couple of weeks to enjoy Sydney Mardi Gras, which he said recently is still one of the most important events in the gay calendar!
‘I am excited about the upcoming Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras as it will be the first I’ve been able to attend in years,’ he told us recently. ‘I once again feel the excitement teenage me felt building again. I can’t wait to be back within my own community again, a community which I miss being a part of because I’m away for my sport. It’s a community that has become a family.’
He added: ‘Pride events are not just about guys in speedos and drag queens – it’s showcasing us as a varied community. I feel we should be thankful that such events exist. Thankful that we as gay men and women are given the platform we need to have our voices heard. Questioning the relevance of such events is foolish. All you need to do is look past all the glitter and partying and see the community that lies beneath. And 16-year-old me thanks you for helping in making me the confident gay man I am today.’
