News from Queer Comrades: Sports Illustrated China features LGBT sport!

From our friends at Queer Comrades comes amazing news about the Chinese edition of Sports Illustrated:

Dear all,

Some great news from China! The new edition of Sports Illustrated China
dedicated its cover and a 9 double-page spread to LGBT and sports. All of
our Queer Comrades teammembers were featured in the article, which gives
large attention to the Gay Games. Deng Fangmin (who received a scholarship
for the Cologne Gay Games) received the most attention, but also Wei
Jiangang and me, Stijn, (we both were invited as journalists to cover the
Gay Games) were interviewed and photographed for the issue.

We made a [video] news item on the LGBT issue of the magazine, which you can watch
here: http://www.queercomrades.com/news/sportsillustrated/

Sports Illustrated is a pretty big Sports Magazine in China, just as in the
US. We're confident that the report will go a long way in promoting the Gay
Games and other LGBT Sports events to the public in China.

With kind regards,
All the best,

Stijn Deklerck
Queer Comrades

While we're talking about Sports Illustrated China, a few months ago they also republished the US edition's feature on Gareth Thomas. For readers of Chinese, they can find that story online HERE.
