Olympic Pole Vaulter Comes Out As Gay, Vaults Over Inhibitions As Well As Pole
On Facebook, decorated Olympian Shawn Barber came out publicly as gay, writing,
“Gay and proud! Thank you to my parents for being such a great support. I continue to grow as a person and have a great support group. My parents are my greatest support and have helped me through a lot recently. To my friends, you are always my friends and i love you too!”
Here’s that baby blanket I posted a few weeks back now that it’s finished (and just in time too; the woman my mom wanted it for goes on maternity leave next week). So love this pattern. Probably won’t take as long a break before I do it again.
