Boston is a city obsessed with sports, being macho, sports, and oh, a lot more sports mixed in there as well.
So when sports journalist and writer Alex Reimer came out publicly as gay on an episode of the Kirk & Callahan radio show and it was all ok, it shows how far that world has come.
After he came out, 20 minutes of gentle ribbing and incredibly comfortable questions and joking followed.
Both hosts chided Reimer for waiting until the final 20 minutes of the program to break the news when they had spent most of the time talking about the World Series.
He revealed he has a crush on Justin Bieber, he’s been out in his private life for over three years. He also plays on a gay flag football team.
And the support has been great:
This is great radio. The best lead-in the midday show has ever had. https://t.co/1zCLQLW7gp
