Sam Champion’s perfect toast to a beachy holigay

Add this share

Sam Champion loves to strip off that HRC Atlanta dinner tux and frolic on the beach like any buff gay man. Especially this big gay beach holigay. But when he does, it gets splashed across the tabloids.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.


Gay Atlanta's Champion and husband Rubem Robierb shared the image Wednesday after it made People magazine. It's a shot of the pair on their beachside honeymoon last November in Rio de Janeiro.

But as gay Atlanta pours onto the beaches of Pensacola this weekend, the buff pair in their skimpy swimsuits makes for the perfect toast to Memorial Day Weekend. It's just one more reason to love them.
