Gareth Thomas in Bath

£10

Topping & Company Booksellers

 

Gareth Thomas had it all. He was a national hero, a sporting icon. He was a leader of men, captain of Wales and the British Lions. To him, rugby was an expression of cultural identity, a sacred code. It was no mere ball game. It gave him everything, except the freedom to be himself. However, Gareth was becoming increasingly engulfed by a secret that threatened to ruin everything he had built – his sexuality.

In 2009, he summoned up his courage, and became the world’s most prominent athlete to come out as gay. Gareth’s inspiring and moving story transcends the world of sport to tell a universal truth about feeling like an outsider, and facing up to who you really are. Come and hear Gareth talk about his career in rugby, and his journey towards self-acceptance.

Early Bird places £10

Includes £10 off a copy of Proud.
