Another gay icon captains England
Following in the wake of David Beckham, apparently the England women’s side now has a gay icon wearing the armband. Kelly Smith has been voted “the most lesbilicious UK sportswoman” in a poll by lesbian website Lesbilicious
Smith picked up 31 per cent of the vote, putting her just ahead of Dame Kelly Holmes (must be something in the name) to take the title. Rosie Kirk of Lesbilicious said: “British lesbians are certainly spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding who are our most lesbilicious athletes, with the Beijing Olympics bringing several new faces on the scene.
“It’s no surprise that Kelly Smith was voted most lesbilicious sportsperson. Kelly has long been a favourite for many women, gay or straight – she’s a brilliant football player and captain, and an inspiration for many young players.”
