    [New] (Proud: My Autobiography) By Gareth Thomas I laughed cried wanted to look after him and give him a kick up the backside In this truthful account of his sexuality in a world full of rough tough blokes makes you just want to protect and wrap in a bubble It's awful that in this day and age of openness that we the public fuelled by the media have become our own editors on how people both in the limelight and not hound each other and don't stop to consider what impact it has o

This autobiography was written in 2014 so is uite dated and misses a lot of Alfie s achievements from recent years such as his Alfie s armyangels Cardiff half teams his HIV diagnosis and his Ironman Wales success All stories I would have loved to have readI would also have loved to have read a lot about his Big Brother experience and his dancing on ice experience I would have also have loved to know I d he still has a friendship with his ex wifeI also found it strange when Alfie was sharing other stories of men in sport who had come out as that wasn t really his story to tell even if he did help theWhilst I enjoyed the book I did think it was uite repetitive However his struggles were real and you could sense his depth of emotion so it was a very honest story

Proud: My Autobiography

review ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ô Gareth Thomas Proud: My Autobiography Summary ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Gareth Thomas Ô 4 review Of a man with a secret that was slowly killing him Something that might devastate not only his own life but the lives of his wife family friends and teammates The only place where he could find any refuge from the pain and guilt of the lie he was living was on the pitch playing the sport he loved But all his success didn't make the strain of hiding who he really was go away His fear that telling the truth. I ve been a massive fan of Gareth s both as a rugby player and since he retired So I was really looking forward to reading this book and finding out about the real man behind the media personality Disappointed would be an understatement He is a mass of judgement and contradiction For example he spends an entire chapter talking about his spiritual roots in Wales and how he goes to the woods and the mountains there to prepare for a match and believes that spirituality helps him play well In the next chapter he moans about the All Blacks doing a haka before their matches saying there s nothing spiritual about it and it s only a coincidence if they win their match He s happy to talk sentiment in great detail about how brilliant things are when he or his team have won a match but says that England s win at the 2003 World Cup has been over romanticised and calls it senitmental tosh In fact the whole book so far has uite an anti English feel to it He repeats on several occasions I m not British I m Welsh sorry mate that makes you British whether you like it or notI don t know whether it s his personality the way his ghostwriter has written the book or a combination of both Either way I m just under halfway through the book and don t think I can finish it he s too arrogant

review ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ô Gareth Thomas Proud: My Autobiography Summary ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Gareth Thomas Ô 4 review WINNER British Sports Book Awards SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEARShortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year AwardGareth Thomas had it all He was a national hero a sporting icon He was a leader of men captain of Wales and the British Lions To him rugby was an expression of cultural identity a sacred code It was no mere ball game It gave him everything except the freedom to be himselfThis is the story. This is an erudite and honest account of a man at the peak of physical prowess who gives his life to his country and his sport but who is plagued by self doubt fear and confusion for who he really isI loved this book not simply for its integrity and power in revealing what it is like for a young man to grow up having to hide his darkest secret from not only his closest friends and family but ultimately from the world but also for the fascinating insight it gives into the mindset of the elite athlete The truth is it shouldn t matter that Gareth Thomas is gay It s actually none of our business But the sad reality is that even now in 2018 there is still misunderstanding still prejudice still persecution and still ignorance Gareth Thomas goes a long way to shattering the stereotypical image of the gay man As the former captain of Wales he offers an incredible insight into this most masculine of sports as a human being he lays bare his soulI would recommend this book wholeheartedly to anyone rugby fan or not I am Welsh or not I m English gay straight bisexual or cross gender I m straight However it will have particular resonance with anyone who has ever come out is thinking about coming out is afraid to come out or who has a son who has just come out like me Gareth Thomas is a gay icon a national hero a sporting legend but above all a decent articulate and honourable man and in writing this book he has done himself Proud
