Louganis played key role in discrimination debate

April 3rd, 2015 at 2:46 pm by under Uncategorized

Olympic gold medal winner Greg Louganis came to Indianapolis for a book signing but agreed to appear before the City County Council on Monday night to advocate for gay rights.

On Tuesday he attempted to be in attendance at a Mike Pence news conference before a member of the governor’s staff kicked him out.

Louganis was waiting in a hallway when a member of Brian Bosma’s staff came to invite him to the House Speaker’s office.

He watched the news conference there along with other GOP leaders and gay rights activist Rick Sutton.

Louganis posed for a selfie with the Speaker and for other photographs and, at one point, his dog sat on the Speaker’s lap.

Bosma talked about it Thursday.

“Personal sports hero to me,” he said. “I watched him dive many times and he shared with me the personal hurt that he felt when he heard the incorrect message that Indiana supported discrimination.”

Sutton says that the Louganis visit with the Speaker was a key moment in this week’s debate.

He believes it contributed to Bosma’s decision to pursue legal protections for gays and lesbians.

“I think it was his belief that if he could help people understand a little bit how we felt, it might help,” said Sutton of Louganis. “And he told them how he felt when he heard about the legislation as someone who had visited here over 30 years and always felt welcome, and he ended by saying that he came here out of love and he wanted to make sure they understood that.”

Louganis got an apology from Bosma and, by the way, he also got an apology from the governor.

He was invited to Mike Pence’s office on Wednesday morning, and according to Sutton, had a pleasant visit.
