Diving slide show: Taking the plunge

Diving is one of the most popular events at the Gay Games, and it’s not just about the attractive men in small Speedos. We think what really appeals to the gay audiences is the focus on aesthetics and perfect form, as well as the high drama of a hushed crowd and a panel of judges.

The Gay Games crowds take diving very seriously. People sit literally on the edge of their seat, with barely a whisper between dives. To help bring you there, RealJock hit the pools up at Northwestern University to witness the men climb high and dive with grace (for the most part) in the platform diving competition.
