Australian rugby star Nick Youngquest covers the latest issue of gay fashion glossy Dorian.

The 29-year-old six-foot player with a huge gay following is a vocal supporter of gay rights.

“I don't see any reason why gay people shouldn't be able to marry,” the told gay glossy Out magazine last year. “I think it should be a union of two people in love. Why not?”

The Dorian cover features a leather-clad Youngquest showing off a “Mira” tattoo emblazoned on his ripped chest.

Two years ago, Youngquest, whose nude posing for the Naked Rugby League Calendar 2007-08 stirred controversy, told gay male entertainment blog that he's fine with being a sex symbol for gay men.

“I have no problem with it at all,” he said, “if they want to look at me that way that's all good! I wish sometimes I got as much attention of the ladies as I do off the men to be honest, but it's all good. The first time I realized it was after doing a calendar in Australia in ‘06 for breast cancer. It was a naked calendar and I think gay guys took a liking to it then.”
