Magazine’s Super Bowl Preview Includes Photo of Two Men Kissing
January 30, 2013 by Carolyn Simon, Associate Director of Digital Media
The current issue of Sports Illustrated features a preview of Sunday’s Super Bowl matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens.
It also features a photo that captures two men sharing a celebratory kiss at Hi Tops, a gay sports bar in the Castro, when the 49ers clinched their place in the big game.
"A lot of people that come in don't even know it's a gay sports bar; that's the best part," Hi Tops bartender Logan Chavarria told NBC Bay Area. "And then we find out we have a common bond."
The photo appears on page 48 of the current issue of the magazine, which is sent to 3 million homes each week.
