Professional skater and Thrasher’s 1999 SOTY Brian Anderson has disclosed his homosexuality in this video piece produced by his friend Giovanni Reda for Vice. Long frowned upon and unaccepted by skateboarders and the skateboarding community, being a gay skater was often likened to career suicide – until now.
Thankfully times have changed for the better and we are proud to share this video with skateboarders across the world. Much respect to you Brian for all that you’ve done and continue to represent as a skateboarder, gay or not.
Rewriting how far back skating goes is a concept we as die hard skateboarders definitely can get behind. From his studio in Singapore, Mister Tucks rewrites skating’s history for a new collaboration with Real Skateboards featuring Dennis Busenitz & Ishod Wair Pro Decks and Temple of Skate Apparel. Getting the chance to work with him on these two boards and tee was nothing short of awesome for the Real crew and they hope you enjoy them and that they open Mister Tuck’s work up to the audience he deserves.
