4. Orlando Cruz
One of the problems with stereotypes regarding the LGBT community is that people assume that certain physical or character traits are associated with sexual orientation. However, Orlando Cruz might just be the perfect counter-example for this cliché. As the first professional boxer to come out as gay, Cruz showed the world that you can be the number one featherweight boxer in the world, represent your country (Puerto Rico, in his case) in the Olympics, and still live your life as a proud gay man.
