Photographer Jeff Sheng is on a mission.
The photographer has been traveling the nation tracking down gay high school and collegiate athletes to include in a new book he hopes to publish next year. A story on Outsports profiles Sheng and his Fearless Campus Tour, which has the goal of photographing 100 athletes.
In a nice twist, the project goes beyond just capturing hot jocks. Sheng looks for diversity in his subjects and wants to use the project to fight discrimination and increase acceptance for gay high school and college students.
“I just think too much of the gay world is white male focused, and while it may be more difficult for me, I want to really present as diverse of a group of people as possible in my project,” Sheng says.
The project doesn’t yet include gay athletes at schools in Georgia, but you can review the gallery of 47 photos Sheng has collected so far. The project continues and Sheng encourage interested jocks to contact him.
