JACK DUERN, THE UK’S ONLY OUT JOCKEY, TALKS PAINKILLERS, PREJUDICE AND COPING UNDER THE PRESSURE

Images > Markus Bidaux

The last time I saw Jack Duern, he was feeling a bit… tender. Th e 22-year-old apprentice jockey had just taken a tumble off a thoroughbred. Deciding that throwing him simply wasn’t enough, the horse had proceeded to turn around and stamp on his testicles as well. But an embarrassing hospital visit and 10 stitches later, Jack was back in the saddle – albeit somewhat gingerly. Since he was racing the next day, he couldn’t take any painkillers (which come under the category of banned substances). Unfortunately for him, all the trotting that day was proving very bouncy.

But despite the excruciating pain he was in, Jack still raced the following aft ernoon. Because that’s what jockeys do – they get back on the horse, both literally and fi guratively, no matter how gnarly their injuries might be, and carry on riding. Like Jack, jockeys have real balls (even if they aren’t always quite as blue).

About Winq

The new October/November issue of Winq is stuffed with gay goodness. We’ve got an exclusive interview and cover with disco-pop queen Sophie Ellis-Bextor and a second cover featuring Ricky Martin. Sophie Ellis-Bextor is back and better than ever on new album Familia, while Puerto-Rican heartthrob Ricky Martin reminds us why he’s still the king of Latin pop (and as smouldering as ever). Elsewhere we meet the UK’s only out jockey, chat with actor Mark Gatiss, celebrate 50 years of Coming Out with author Jeffrey Weeks, and get to grips with Anohni’s politically-charged new album. Plus a bumper wedding section and Karl Lagerfeld in our business section. The wait is over - Winq is the luxury lifestyle magazine for gay men.
