#Samesportdifferentsexuality: roeiers poseren tegen taboe rond homo’s in de sport

Simon Haerinck (34, tweede van rechts) van de Koninklijke Roeivereniging Club Gent overtuigde collega-roeiers Ruben Claeys, Niels Boone and Henri Steyaert om in ontbloot bovenlijf en in Calvin Klein-ondergoed te poseren tegen homofobie in de sport.

De campagne is ‘Same sport, different sexuality‘: dezelfde sport, verschillende seksualiteit. Haerinck is gay, de andere kerels zijn hetero. 

Bedoeling is om groepsfoto’s op sociale media. te plaatsen met #samesportdifferentsexuality. Onderstaande met de roeiers is gemaakt door Louis Kerckhof.

Today we are launching the first part of our campaign “same sport, different sexuality”, to raise awareness about homophobia in sports, which unfortunately is still a taboo. Playing sports should be about having fun and improving your mental and physical health. It’s about escaping the daily stress of school or work. You should not have to worry about your sexual orientation whilst playing the sport you love. This is why we reach out to you! To all straight people playing sports: take a picture with your LGBTQ- teammate to show them your love and acceptance, and post it using our hashtag #samesportdifferentsexuality. We will be collecting all pics on our social media pages. No one should have to hide their sexuality out of fear for their teammates’ reactions. No one should have to be afraid to even start playing sports for this reason. Sport is for everyone so let’s create a place of acceptance. Big thanks to my fellow rowers @claeys_ruben, @nielsraoulboone and @henri__st . Straight guys who truly don’t have a problem with me being gay and accept everyone for who he or she is. Big thanks to our amazing photographer @louiskerckhof and his assistant @nanoialoha , for the great pictures. Big thanks to our MUA @suki_mg_ , a real upcoming talent. Couldn’t have done it without you guys. #same #sport #different #sexuality #sports #straightguy #gay #lgbtq #awereness #instaguy #campaign #taboo #equality #sportlife #love #homophobia #rowing #roeien #sexualorientation @hoscos
