I'd better find some facts. He attended Yarra Valley Grammar School and spent some time as an exchange student in Kansas, US. To quote, "“I met a succession of very lovely, deeply prejudiced people.” He was the only kid in the school who believed in evolution." He played football for the Yarra Valley Football Club. He came out in 2012....wow, where did that seven years go? That same year he started a change.org petition urging the AFL to sponsor anti homophobia messages to be screened at football matches and for the AFL to commit to a gay pride round of matches, which did happen. He gathered a number of high profile AFL players to support him, including the rather hot Andrew Swallow. He retired from football because of injuries. He led the Victoria's Gay Pride March in 20His list of activism is long wide and very impressive and has also been very involved in mental health.
In 2017 he was awarded Victorian Young Australian of the Year in Australia.
He is now running a second time for the blue ribbon conservative federal seat of Higgins as a Greens candidate. It is not my electorate and even if it was, I would not vote for him just because he is gay, would I Comrade. But he is worthy opponent to the female doctor who is running for the conservative party and who will probably win. The Labor candidate is a female barrister.
Grooming maketh the man. You listening John Gray of Wales?
