Meet John Epping. He’s a professional curler from Ontario who came out publicly last year.
The brown-eyed 34-year-old just had quite a run at the Tim Hortons Brier Canadian curling championships. He and his team finished in the semifinals and nabbed a bronze medal, along with a $42,000 prize. It was the first time Epping appeared in the national championships.
“This was unbelievable. It was so memorable. For me, it was a really special first Brier,” Epping says. “It was amazing. The crowds were great. Saskatchewan has always been one of my favorite places to curl.”
Epping came out publicly in January 2017 an interview with the Globe and Mail. Last June, he married his husband, Thomas Shipton. The two are the proud papas of an adorable Spanish water dog.
