!! OMG, RIP: Out gay rugby player, bobsledder, activist Simon Dunn passes way at 35 !!

Out, gay athlete and activist Simon Dunn has passed away at age 35. An Australian athlete, Dunn was a longtime advocate for LGBTQ people in sports and once had Olympic dreams. He was found by authorities in his Sydney apartment on Saturday morning.

“About 10 am on Saturday, January 21, 2023, police were called to a unit on Crown Street, Surry Hills, after reports the body of a man had been found inside,” New South Wales police said in a statement.

“The body is believed to be that of the 35-year-old occupant. Officers from Surry Hills Police Area Command have commenced inquiries into the circumstances surrounding his death, which is not being treated as suspicious.”

A report is being prepared for the coroner. This is so sad! The pandemic was so rough on everyone. Please check in on your friends and make sure they’re okay! Sending love to Simon’s friends and family during this heartwrenchingly painful time.

  2. Sorry to say it but my money’s on drugs. It still floors me how casual so many are about using meth, k and other quite dangerous substances. Get some help y’all. It’s not too late. Say yes yes yes not no no no to rehab bitches.

  3. Weird WEIRD headline. Most important thing about him was that he was “out”??
    Not someone’s son, brother, friend, lover, uncle…? Or Australian, or Rugby player, or Bobsledder? Just Out?
    What a way to make a statement on someone’s death!

    • Ever stop to think the reason they posted the headline that way was because not everyone who peruses their website knows who he is?

    I don’t know who he is but he’s far too young to be gone. everyone take care of yourselves please, and check in on others who may be going through it.
