Boston sports writer Alex Reimer publicly came out as gay on an episode of the “Kirk & Callahan” radio show.
Boston-based sports writer Alex Reimer decided to come out publicly as gay Wednesday during a spot on WEEI’s “Kirk & Callahan” show. What ensued was 20 minutes of incredibly comfortable questions and joking that demonstrated just how far sports radio — or at least the Kirk & Callahan show — has come.
The radio show hosts jokingly chided Reimer for waiting until the final 20 minutes of their interview to break the news.
Reimer revealed that he’s got a crush on Justin Bieber and that he’s been out in his private life for over three years. He also plays on a gay flag football team.
For the record, he’s welcome to play on our team anytime!
