It’s hunky guys like Hudson Taylor that help me get out of bed every day.
The University of Maryland wrestling star kicks butt on and off the mat, ranking No. 3 in the country in the 197-pound NCAA wrestling weight class. But because of his loud and proud stance on gay rights he’s #1 in our book.
Hudson got into trouble with his teammates because he insisted on wearing a HRC equality sticker on his wrestling helmet as a political statement:
“For me and my generation, [LGBT rights] is a pressing issue,” said Taylor, 23, a native of New Jersey. “I believe that whatever history I’m a part of, I’m responsible for. If I feel something is unjust or unequal, I feel a responsibility to do something about it.”
When he’s not winning in wrestling or being outspoken on gay rights, the Performance Art student loves to learn magic tricks and has already proposed marriage to his girlfriend, right after seeing the movie Milk. What a catch. I think they will make some beautiful children.
Check him after a match as he briefly shows his fine “pasty white ripped” body.
I am very outspoken about equality. I believe that people should have the maximum amount of rights so long as it doesn’t infringe on other people’s rights. As a result, I am passionate about gay rights, feminist issues, or really any other issue pertaining to civil rights. No, I’m not your typical wrestler.
