THE Fight OF HIS LIFE

Pretty boy Timothy Guest loves a good fight. In fact, he says fighting has helped him overcome both ADHD and depression. Now the former go-go boy and jail bird is in MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) training and hopes to become the first openly gay fighter in the UFC (Ultimate Fight Championship). Marc Andrews did not step into the ring for this interview! Photography by Ricardo Muñiz.

Timothy Guest looks set to become the first openly gay fighter in the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), the martial arts promotion company that tours the world staging frightening in-cage fights between super-fit and super-agro opponents. Ask your straight buddies for verification!

With a major sponsor on board, Tim’s set to claim his title as the world’s first gay superhero, of sorts – something he’s aspired to since he was a kid. He’s as quick with his wit as he is with his fists and feet. With killer abs, a to-die-for smile, bubble butt and bulges in all the right places, he’s the whole package. As a flamboyant gay kid, he survived schoolyard bullying and miraculously turned into a martial arts expert and LGBT role model on the verge. He tells DNA that his ultimate aim is “to break down the fragile ideology of masculinity in America” and beyond. Them’s fighting words.

DNA: You came out at age 11. What made you realise you were gay so early?

Timothy: I don’t remember what made me realise, but I recall the one thing that made me feel it was okay. I was hanging out with my best friend. She asked me if I had a crush on anyone. I said I did and she said, “It’s okay if it’s a boy. You’re allowed to.” I was shocked, but I quickly named the boy and I smiled. I was only 11 then but that’s how I came out.

Steve Pafford recalls his up-close-and-personal encounters with George, and we unearth a great anecdote from Aussie music’s Paul Mac – something to do with “fluffing”! Openly gay UFC fighter, Timothy Guest joins us to talk about overcoming ADHD and depression and how he went from go-go boy and jail bird to ultimate fighting champion. On the cover, Abel Cruz from Photo Studio Miami captures the body-licious Jason Whidby in rocket-fuelled shoot that will leave you begging for more!
